Just found this, it's subtitled The Management of Bees with a description of the Ladies Safety Hive. (1835)

So what do you need to know?

Maybe the
"Misapplied parsimony of country people?" or
"Disadvantages attendant on the old cottage system"
"Idiot bee keeper of Selborne"
"Usual aparatus for draining combs" "A better apparatus suggested"
It's lovely.

My father's library, knew about it but had forgotton and it has a different significance nowadays. I saw it and thought must take it and show Jamanda.

sounds fab - what a little gem of a book!

The bit about parsimonious country folk sounded fun!
