Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This influential guide by "the father of modern beekeeping," originally published in 1853, constitutes the first descriptive treatise of modern bee management. Its innovations allowed people to engage in actual beekeeping, rather than simply handling bee domiciles and extracting the honey. The techniques it explains and illustrates are still employed 150 years later--including the author's patented invention, a movable frame hive. In a reader-friendly, enthusiastic style, Langstroth addresses every aspect of beekeeping: bee physiology; diseases and enemies of bees; the life-cycles of the queen, drone, and worker; bee-hives; the handling of bees; and many other topics. Unabridged republication of the classic 1878 (fourth) edition. 25 plates.

Book News Annotation:

Langstroth introduced the modern practice of beekeeping, and invented a movable frame hive that is the ancestor of hives now used throughout the world. His handbook was first published in 1853; the fourth edition is reproduced here along with its illustrations.
