The Life of the Bee

MAETERLINCK, Maurice; SUTRO, Alfred (trans.); DETMOLD, Edward J. (illus.)

Regular price $400.00 Sale

It is not my intention to write a treatise on apiculture, or on practical bee-keeping begins Maeterlinck and it might be said that this volume pertains more to life than it does to bees. The Life of the Bee is for readers curious about a brilliant thinker's meditations on nature. Not surprisingly, Maeterlinck won the Nobel Prize for literature in 1911. A beautiful volume, illustrated by the gifted Edward J. Detmold.
