 This influential guide by the Reverend L. L. Langstroth, ‘the father of modern beekeeping.” revolutionised the practice of beekeeping. Originally published in 1853, his work 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. This book explains and illustrates techniques still employed 150 years later – including the author’s patented invention, a movable frame hive that quickly spread into common use around the world
