British Bees, British 1866- full 16 colour bee plates


1866 first edition British Bees, an introduction to the study of the Natural History And Economy Of The Bees by W. F. Shuckard


What makes this first edition book so outstanding are the full 16 colour plates within. Books as this were cut apart for the colour plates and the contents destroyed. To find a complete version such as this is rare. The cover features a large embossed bee in highlighted gold.

Condition is very good. The cover is bright with wear to the inner joint with small wear to base. The cover has a clear cellophane protective cover.

One only!
