1978 - P.J.C. Vedder's Modern Mushroom Growing Book Published in English

It was only within two years since that very 1st trip to Australia, for lecturing, that husband Pieter's Dutch book on Mushroom Growing got now published in English as well.
Following the nature of comments I received on my previous post, I'd like to give some more information about my retired husband Pieter...
This was created at the VIIIth International Congress on Mushroom Science 1971
at Imperial College London
PJC Vedder
Principal of a Famous Training Centre
~
From youth up-getting them Mushroom minded
So there it was; 1978 the first English publication of his book!
Top from left: Dutch, German, French
Spanish and English
The above article (Dutch) got published in "Bedrijfsontwikkeling" September, 1979, page 872
Vedder's Modern Mushroom Growing in five languages.
In 1961 the book 'Moderne Champignonteelt' appeared by Mr. P.J.C. Vedder. This manual was the successor of the 'Manual for Mushroom Culture' from 1958 by Bels. New revised editions are being published regularly. In 1978 the fifth edition came off the press.
Vedder's book, a cultivation manual, is a reflection of the mushroom industry in The Netherlands, with aspects of research, information, education, growers organization, marketing, processing, etc.
Vedder in 1963 became Director (Principal) of the Center for Mushroom Cultivation Education in Horst, Province of Limburg.
The developments of the mushroom industry in The Netherlands, drew the attention of many from abroad. Requests therefore came for allowing to have 'Moderne Champignon Teelt' translated. This yielded the result that Vedder's book now lies before us in five languages. Dutch (5th edition) 1978, German 1970, French 1974, English 1978 and Spanish 1979. A unique event. They are not short tutorials, but books of about 400 pages.
A manual in five languages has never been published in the more than 350-year anniversary of mushroom cultivation.
The manual now covers 25% of the total language area, so that many can draw knowledge from the mushroom events in The Netherlands. In the Dutch history of agriculture and horticulture a manual in five languages is unique.

The five books by Vedder (under photo).

Needless to say that I feel very proud of my Pieter!
His book has been called: 'The Mushroom Bible' and it has helped so many.
Meanwhile in 8 official languages!
From left at top: Dutch, Italian, French, English
Polish, Spanish and German
Bulgarian has been added and the Chinese just 'stole' it without ever bothering copyright!
Pieter got numerous references, like here: GROWING MUSHROOM REFERENCES
His colleagues world wide responded with kind letters.
Like here by The Mushroom Growers' Association of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, Mr. Fred C. Atkins who writes about the arrival of your marvelous book and the generous inscription made me a very happy man.
The British have had a very close and long standing relationship with Pieter.
This yielded him The Sinden Award 1982
Pieter Vedder
In recognition of his outstanding
contributions to the
Mushroom Industry
for many years both in the
International field and on behalf of
British Growers who have made this
presentation.
His book
'Modern Mushroom Growing'
has found a place on every progressive
grower's desk.
His mushroom courses at Horst
have a worldwide reputation and
have helped innumerable growers,
young and not so young, from many countries.
In addition, his advice is always
available to anyone who asks and
is always cogent.
Chairman
Mushroom Growers' Association
Another very kind letter from the USA from the American Mushroom Institute
Dear Pieter:
I wish to congratulate you on the most informative and educational
book I ever read on mushroom growing. It is an encyclopedia on
mushroom growing. It is a complete review of growing, diseases,
mechanization and many small detailed aspects of growing analyzed
with great knowledge and experience. No wonder that this practical
book is translated in so many languages.
As an Agronomist with 34 years working with the mushroom industry,
I always find very valuable information and excellent guidance. Only
a dedicated teacher, grower, and researcher like you could wrap up
this valuable book that I am sure will have a constant increased
demand. I am very proud that I was one of the first to have this
translation right-off-the-press.
I am very pleased that I also got the opportunity to personally give
you the letter of invitation to the AMI conference in San Francisco.
I am sure you will enjoy meeting our growers as well as our hospitality.
Looking forward to seeing you soon,
Sincerely,
Aron Kinrus, Agronomist
Public Relations Coordinator
Lastly, but in fact THE most important one came on June 13, 1979 from Pieter's Boss:

MINISTRY OF AGRICULTURE AND FISHERIES

I have heard from the press about your book "Moderne Champignonteelt" now having been published in a fifth language. With this unique happening I would like to warmly compliment you.
I am pleased that at an international level your work and with that also agricultural education is being propagated.
Although it is not my habit to approach in this way authors from agricultural education circles, I have felt to make an exception for this particular case.
THE DIRECTOR OF THE AGRICULTURAL EDUCATION
 (Dr. Ir. P.K. Schenk)

No wonder that copies of his book still are being offered at a better price than they ever sold for right off the press!
This is not the actual cover...
Wonder why they put this on?!

Thanks for your visits and comments - greatly appreciated, also by Pieter!

  1. Hello Mariette, It is something to be proud of that Pieter wrote the standard manual on mushroom growing. It is no wonder that his services were so in demand by mushroom growers. Even a small increase in efficiency would be well worth his lecture fee!

    1. Dear Jim,
      Yes, it sure is and he has extended his knowledge to so many, worldwide, at least he did leave something behind. That was what his Dad always said, whatever you do in life, make sure you leave something behind that you will be remembered by.
      You mean that an increase in yield and efficiency would pay for the consultancy fee, for lecturing it was already great to get the travel expenses paid and usually they gifted a travel tote or an alarm clock additionally!
      Hugs,
      Mariette

      You sure get very careful for driving in heavy traffic in the Melbourne area and night time is best to be avoided, for many reasons.
      Hugs and love back to you from both of us on a rainy and dreary Sunday.

  5. Your husband Pieter gifted the mushroom industry with such important book. It’s wonderful the book has been translated into different languages so the information can be shared more widely!
    I love the sketch of him in the first photo :-)

    Have a wonderful weekend, Mariette! xo

    1. Dearest Tamago,
      He sure did leave something behind for the world-wide mushroom industry. His writing has been always practical and understandable for the grower, not just an academic paper or writing that is inaccessible to the majority of readers.
      Oh, that sketch is done so well, emphasizing on his character brilliantly. That's how I remember him for the very beginning, as my teacher.
      Happy Sunday to you as well, we got a dreary and rainy day...

      It sure is something for looking back onto with a certain pride of having accomplished something for the mushroom industry. Well, that 'vintage' pricing did surprise us too and we wonder why they use this strange cover?!

      Yes I am and Pieter also can look back on a life well spent for helping thousands of others making a living.
      That makes one feel rich inside and that is far more important and longer lasting than any earthly riches.
