"This book is a practical attempt to show that the poorest, stoniest corner can be rendered as productive as any by putting hives upon it -hives which, except for the few weeks of honey-flow, can be largely left to take care of themselves." Our interaction with bees dates back thousands of years, beginning with native cultures collecting honey from the wild insects as a part of their sustenance. Since then, our desire to domesticate these creatures has had man searching for ways to better understand the art of the apiarist. With modern bacteria and parasites threatening the honey-bee population in the United States and across the world there has been a recent increase in interest for the craft of making honey and keeping bees. Tickner Edwards, author of The Lore of the Honey-Bee brings us Bee-Keeping for All: A Manual of Honey-Craft", so that this art is accessible to every man "with a small piece of land, and whose capital consists, in the main, of the capacity to put in about 300 hard-working days in the year upon it." From hive-making to garden planning, and from winter care to pests and diseases, Edwards details the ins and outs of proper care and maintenance bee hives. Originally published in 1922, this reprint of the 2nd edition by Methuen & Company was printed in 1926.
