This online collection provides bibliographic information and select digitizations of materials from the late 1800s to 1980s. Works are organized by author and presented in their originally published language. Interestingly, this means much of the work is not in English.

Somewhat of a wild card, this resource is limited to North American and compiles digitized mushroom-related publications chiefly from the 19th and 20th centuries. Historic photographs of mushrooms are interspersed with Victory Garden era spawning techniques and recipes.
