Description

Originally published in 1908, this is one of the earliest books on bee keeping and the natural history of the honey bee, with information on its natural history, bee society, anatomy, bee keeping, and much more. Full of fascinating information and detailed explanations, this timeless volume will be of considerable utility to modern bee keepers, and would make for a valuable addition to collections of related literature.

Contents include: “The Oldest Craft Under the Sun”, “The Ancients and the Honey-Bee”, “The Isle of Honey”, “Bee-Masters in the Middle Ages”, “At The City Gates”, “The Commonwealth of the Hive”, “Early Works in the Bee-City”, “The Genesis of the Queen”, The Bride-Widow”, “The Sovereign Worker-Bee”, and more.

Many classic bee books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on bee keeping.
