(Beekeeping) Hunter, John.  A Manual of Bee-Keeping. 

Illus. with wood engravings of honey bees and bee-keeping equipment. Gilt-lettered pictorial green cloth. Fourth Edition. London: W.H. Allen, 1884.

A lovely Victorian-era book on keeping bees, from the natural history of the honey bee and their behavior and habits, to building and maintaining hives, removing wax and honey, removing stingers, and even a chapter of recipes for using honey. Minor bumps to upper & lower edges of front cover; a tiny bot of scattered foxing, else very good and bright.
