About This Item

Dodd Mead, NY, 1915. 1st edition. Hardcover. Fair]. "Nobel Prize winner Maurice Maeterlinck offers brilliant proof that 'no living creature, not even man, has achieved in the center of his sphere, what the bee has achieved.' From their amazingly intricate feats of architecture to their intrinsic sense of self-sacrifice, Maeterlinck takes a 'bee's-eye view' of the most orderly society on Earth." [Pub. Info] Leather. Evidence of removed book plate. Front hinge broken; front cover separated from book. Foxing to pages. In need of restoration. 1ST THUS

Synopsis

It is not my intention to write a treatise on apiculture, or on practical bee-keeping. Excellent works of the kind abound in all civilised countries, and it were useless to attempt another. France has those of Dadant, Georges de Layens and Bonnier, Bertrand, Hamet, Weber, Clement, the Abbe Collin, etc. English-speaking countries have Langstroth, Bevan, Cook, Cheshire, Cowan, Root, etc. Germany has Dzierzon, Van Berlespoch, Pollmann, Vogel, and many others.
