The chapters of this book include: 'The Honey-Bee', 'Natural History', 'The Inhabitants of the Hive', 'The Queen', 'The Workers', 'The Drones', 'Parthenogenesis', 'Metamorphosis', 'Bees and Honey', 'Hives', 'Bee-Keeping in Antiquity', 'The Bee Space', 'British Types', 'The National Hive', 'American Hives', 'Frame Sizes', 'Races of Bees', etcetera.
