The Feminine Monarchie
"The Feminine Monarchie, or the Historie of Bees; shewing Their admirable Nature, and Properties, Their Generation, and Colonies, Their Government, Loyaltie, Art, Industrie, Enemies, Warres, Magnanimitie, &c. Together With the right ordering of them from time to time: And the Sweet Profit arising thereof."

by Charles Butler. 1623.

They really could write book titles in those days! My favorite part is the line about "sweet profit" at the end. How often do you have the opportunity to chose a "favorite part" of a book title??

The whole book has been re-published online by the library of Cornell University.
