This is the way my Grandfather kept his hives as well.

Not too sexy, but has all the right stuff. This book is a timeless guide to modern-day beekeeping. The pictures are a little dated, and black-white, but the information is sound and professionally written. This book left me feeling well educated and confident. And at this price, it's a deal!

Very appropriate title since this book is packed with useful information for beginning beekeepers. It was definitely worth the money I paid Amazon for this book. The black and white pictures are somewhat outdated but the information provided in this book is timeless. It is divided so that information is easily found and has been a source of reference for us on several occasions.

From a beginners standpoint this is an excellent book. This book is packed full of information and an excellent reference. This title gives you the principles you have to know to start seriously thinking about beekeeping.

Besides this book I'll recomend you this one:
The Complete Book Of Beekeeping

Same book from the 20s with a new cover. Not really what I had hoped for. Most of the language is highly dated and it doesn't address what is happening today.

We use the newer editions of "First Lessons in Beekeeping" each year in our annual Bee School. I enjoy reading the older editions. This is an excellent book.

Great beginning book for those new to the hobby and a grand refresher for those a little more experienced. Fine work.

This book is much easier to follow than the original Dadant book. It remains an excellent resource despite its age.

Over all good survey of bee keeping - and an easy no nonsense afternoon read. If you are thinking about starting your own hobby colony of bees, this is a very good first step. This is the way my Grandfather kept his hives as well.
