The Feminine Monarchie is a re-print of a book first published in 1623.

The chapters are

1. The nature and properties of Bees and their Queen.
2. Bee garden and seats for the hives.
3. The hives and the Dreffing of them.
4. The breeding of bees and of the drone.
5. Their swarming and the hiving of them.
6. Their worker.
7. Their enemies.
8. The feeding of them.
9. Removing them.
10. The fruit and profit of them.

The language and style of writing is fixed firmly in the 17th Century. This will make a fascinating read for anyone who is interested in the history of beekeeping, how it has changed, and indeed how it has remained the same over the centuries.
