"A. & M. College Apiary" is a detailed and beginner-friendly guide to setting up and managing a profitable apiary, with chapters on contemporary techniques, different races of bee, honey-plants, common pitfalls, and much more. Although old, this book constitutes a timeless handbook on the subject and is not to be missed by modern enthusiasts. Contents include: "Report on the Experimental Apiary", "Bee Keeping", "Introduction", "Food Value of Honey", "Profit in Bee Keeping", "Races of Bees", "Black, or German Bees", "Carniolans", "Cyorians", "Holy Islands", "Italians", "Golden Italians", "Hybrids", "How to Secure Bee", "Life and Habits of the Bee", etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on Bee-keeping. This book was first published in 1902.
