"A single bee, with all its energy, collects but a tiny drop of honey at each trip to the field, in the best season, yet the colony to which it belongs may harvest hundreds of pounds of surplus for its owner, in a single year." Charles Dadant, father of the author of First Lessons in Beekeeping, C.P. Dadant was widely known as a preeminent force in beekeeping throughout Europe. "In France, "Dadant" and "Dadant hive" are household words among beekeepers." When C.P. Dadant published First Lessons in Beekeeping in 1917, he was the Editor of the American Bee Journal. Many of the articles published by the journal were practical guides which blend well with this work; in it Dadant combines numerous photos with hundreds of illustrations to tell the story of the bee, the hive and the honey produced inside as well as explaining the methodology behind creating and tending the hive professionally. With extensive content on varieties of bees, establishing your apiary, production and even marketing of the honey, First Lessons in Beekeeping blends fact, observation and know-how gleaned from nearly one hundred years of experience into an easy to understand volume. The tenth edition was published by American Bee Journal in 1934.
