The Bee-Keeper's Directory of the Theory and Practice of Bee Culture in all Departments - The Result of Eighteen Years Personal Study of Their Habits and Instincts

Bee-keeping has become a much more popular pastime in recent years with a vast increase in amateur hives on allotments and in gardens. This is the perfect guide for somebody wishing to set up their first hive for fun or for profit. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.

The Inception of Conscious and Lucid Dreams

Physiological Aspects
The Inception of Conscious and Lucid Dreams is a retitled reprint of the widely quoted original manuscript published by the University of South Dakota Media Press in 1974. This book was the first published work dedicated to exploring conscious or lucid dreams (dreams wherein you realize you are dreaming) within the larger context of dreams and sleep. A general and original theory of sleep and dreams is outlined as a context within which to understand lucid dreams as a natural extension of these mechanisms rather than an exceptional event experienced only by gifted individuals. This 2010 printing contains a new preface that outlines a design for scientific dream-to-dream communication using existing electronic tools and the internet. The book also attempts to formulate a biochemical reason for sleeping and dreaming that may be too technical for some readers.
