by Hilda M. Ransome (Author)
Chapters cover the folklore of bees and bee culture—from Egyptian, Babylonian,
and other ancient sources to practices in modern Europe. Rare illustrations of
bees, hives, and beekeepers as they appear in paintings and sculpture; on coins,
jewelry, and Mayan glyphs; and carved into African tree trunks.
