Format: Hardcover
L. L. Langstroth published his classic in 1853. It's public domain, and you can find it at Cornell University's online library at [...] and (iirc) at Project Gutenberg. Langstroth designed the first modern beehive after closely observing "bee space," which meant that, by cooperating with a natural tendency of the bees themselves, beekeepers no longer had to hack apart their hives in order to lift out the frames.

What Dadant & Sons (Editors) did, from 1946 to 1975, was to update and continue Langstroth's work, in scope and spirit if not in every slavish detail, with the works and studies of beekeepers, apiculturists and entomologists. The book was extensively revised in 1963 and again in 1975.

In 2008, Dadant & Sons edition is out of print, although Langstroth's original has been reissued by various publishers.

Since 1975, of course, the beekeeping industry has encountered new pests, exotic diseases like Israeli acute paralysis virus (IAPV), new environmental hazards such as IMD and other chlorinatated "neo-nicotinoids", aggressive alien strains such as the so-called Africanized bee, and the great bugbear of the 21st century, Colony Collapse Disorder, which has killed off as much as a third of all bee colonies world wide and inflamed passionate accusations and denials from all corners of modern agriculture including the agrichemicals industry.

None of that is discussed in any edition of Dadant's Hive and the Honebee, but they are well aware of these situations -- Dadant and Co. is the modern publisher of the highly respected American Bee Journal.

My husband just went to a State Bee Association class yesterday for an all day seminar. They said this was the "bible" of bee keeping...and "the book" to get. I see on amazon that it is over $200 new or around $20 used.....glad to be able to purchase a used copy!

I love tis book! I am trying to learn as much as I can about bees and this is a must read for people like me. Bees are a big responsibility, like another pet, and this book helps you understand what you are going to face and how much enjoyment you will get out of this wonderful hobby. Read it!
