First published in 1859, “Bee-Keeping for Beginners” is a comprehensive handbook on bee-keeping with a focus on keeping bees for profit. Profusely illustrated and including information on all aspects of the practice, this volume will be of considerable utility to modern enthusiasts and would make for a worthy addition to collections of related literature. Contents include: “History of Bee-keeping-Profits and Pleasures-Luck and Pluck-Requisites for Success-Bee Literature”, “Varieties of Bees in the Hive”, “Workers, Drones, and Queen”, “Undeveloped Females”, “Duties of Workers”, “Size of Worker Cells”, “Length of Life of Workers”, “Object of the Drones”, “Length of Life of Drones”, etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on Bee-keeping.
