Bees.- Butler (Rev. Charles) The Feminine Monarchy, or the History of Bees...translated...by W.S. to which is added some Observations of Silk Worms..., engraved frontispiece by John Drapentier, light browning, paper flaw hole to lower outer corner of D6 touching catchword, contemporary calf, covers stamped "Butler on Bees" in gilt, spine gilt with red morocco label, rubbed, joints split, upper cover becoming loose, [British Bee Books 18; Walker Catalogue p.12], 12mo, for G.Conyers...and T.Ballard, 1704.

⁂ A translation of Richard Richardson's 1673 Latin version Monarchia foeminina. ESTC lists only 3 copies of this edition (BL & York Minister in UK, and Cornell in America) but this is an error as this Rothamsted copy is one of the 4 UK copies of the variant edition of 1704 by A.Baldwin (others BL, Durham & Bodleian), plus one in America (University of California).
