This is volume I of "Bees and Bee-Keeping Scientific and Practical". It is a detailed treatise on bees with chapters on physiology, floral relations, anatomy, and profitable management. Profusely illustrated and full of interesting and useful information, "Bees and Bee-Keeping Scientific and Practical" is highly recommended for modern enthusiasts and collectors alike. Contents include: "Wild and Hive Bees", "Economy of Hive Bee", "General Structure", "Nerve System", "Salivary (?) Glands of Bees", "Tongue and Mouth Parts", "Organs of Special Sense: Antennae and Eyes", "Thorax and Legs", "Wings and Flight: Buzzing and Humming", "Segregation of Wax, and Bee Architecture", "Sting Structure", etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive.
