Root, A.I.  THE ABC OF BEE CULTURE: A CYCLOPEDIA OF EVERY THING PERTAINING TO THE CARE OF THE HONEY-BEE; BEES, HONEY, HIVES, IMPLEMENTS, HONEY-PLANTS, ETC., FACTS GLEANED FROM THE EXPERIENCE OF THOUSANDS OF BEE KEEPERS ALL OVER OUR LAND AND AFTERWARD VERIFIED BY PRACTICAL WORK IN OUR OWN APIARY. Medina, Ohio: A.I. Root, 1887. Rebound in library buckram. Ex-library, but in very good condition. Old library bookplate. Generally clean and nice. 

An early edition of this classic American bee manual.  A.I. Root did more to popularize beekeeping in American than any other single person.  He ran a successful bee magazine, manufactured beekeeping supplies and sold them by mail. This is not a collector copy since it is rebound and was discarded from a library. However, it is in good condition and is actually sturdier in this library-style binding.


Postage to US addresses: $3 by media rate or $9 by Priority Mail. Always carefully packed. Other countries inquire. Can combine shipping on multiple auction purchases. California residents pay 7.75% sales tax unless a signed resale card with valid seller's number is submitted.
