Don’t expect a modern treatise about beekeeping, this book was published in 1856. But it is a fascinating and very readable account of beekeeping in the days before removable frames, when honey was “sold in the comb”, and many things we now take for granted about bees and their care were still only speculations. Quinby kept many hundreds of hives, became one of the first “commercial” beekeepers in America, and invented one of the first devices for using smoke to calm bees. He also made many experiments to find better and more efficient ways of keeping bees and improving honey production, and many of his ideas about bee behaviour and the roles of bees in the hive are now proven facts.
Started reading and so far its given m a good insight to my new hobby.
I am currently on a bee course and was looking for additional material to read to gain more knowledge and understanding of the bee and habitat along with different techniques used.

got this just to add to my growing collection of bee keeping books its old fashioned but interesting to see how it used to be done.
I have just moved house and now live in the countryside where a friend is a bee keeper and I would like to help out but need to know some info as a base – very keen
This book serves to remind us just how much the ‘modern advanced’ world has forgotten.
