Format: Hardcover
-----------------------------------

The Nobel Prize winner offers brilliant proof that "no living creature, not even man, has achieved in the center of his sphere, what the bee has achieved."

From their amazingly intricate feats of architecture to their intrinsic sense of self-sacrifice, Maeterlinck takes a "bee's-eye view" of the most orderly society on Earth.

Translated by Alfred Sutro - Introduced by John Heath-Stubbs - Illustrated by Wilf Hartley.

Special Ed from the Folio Society.
