The Feminine Monarchie

Facsimile of 1623 By Charles Butler

Charles Butler (1560-1647), sometimes called the Father of English Beekeeping, was a logician, grammarist, author,minister (Vicar of Wootton St Lawrence, near Basingstoke, England), and an influential beekeeper. He was also an early proponent of English spelling reform. He observed that bees produce wax combs from scales of wax produced in their own bodies; and he was among the first to assert that drones are male and the queen female, though he believed worker bees lay eggs. A classic beekeeping title.
