Beekeeping Book--fun reading

I wrote a post on the Beesource.com message boards about the drone being attacked by a worker bee.  One respondent replied with a quote from Edward Bevan, M.D., from his 1843 book "The Honey Bee:  Its Natural History, Physiology and Management".  It is fascinating reading, in a light and often humorous manner.  You can read it as an html or download a pdf since Google scanned it and is in the public domain.  The link is:

Enjoy!
