Excerpt from Beekeeping: A Discussion of the Life of the Honeybee and of the Production of Honey

It has seemed desirable in the early chapters to discuss bees as they exist without man's interference, thus giving the foun dation on which the practice of. Beekeeping rests. The bee keeper is not especially interested in the anatomy of the bee and, while it is necessary to use illustrations of various organs and to describe them briefly, an effort has been made to treat the bee as a living animal and to have the discussion deal with physiology and especially with activities, in so far as investi gations have thrown light on these processes. In the prepara tion of the chapters devoted to the management of the apiary, an effort has been made to present the various systems of manipulations in such a way that the underlying principles shall be evident, rather than to attempt to describe each sys tem as if it were separate.

Review:

Applewood Books has published reprints of two of beekeeping's great past books... The second is ""Beekeeping: A Discussion of the Life of the Honeybee,"" first published in 1918, by Everett Franklin Phillips, of Cornell Bee Library fame. 457 pages contain 24 chapters and almost 200 illustrations with some photos. It is about keeping bees. It covers bee biology, colony organization, beekeeping equipment, managing for honey production, pests and diseases, wintering, honey sources, and queen rearing. Nearly 90 years old, it still has a boatload of good information, useful even in today's world of varroa mites and Colony Collapse Disorder. -- Kim Flottum, Editor of Bee Culture ""Bee Culture: The Magazine of American Beekeeping"" (01/12/2009)
