The American Bee Journal is the “oldest bee paper in America established in 1861 devoted to scientific bee-culture and the production and sale of pure honey. Published every Wednesday, by Thomas G. Newman, Editor and Proprietor.” In this issue is topics from Colchian Honey and Honey-Producing in California to Early Importations of Italian Bees and Tardiness in Fecundity. – Summary by Larry Wilson for LibriVox
As a former beekeeper, I embraced the opportunity to read for you:
- Track #01 Pure Liquid Honey in Glass, by Charles Dadant: this and Track #10 are protests by beekeepers that stores were selling sugar water syrup labeled as “honey”
- Track #08 Remarkable Tardiness in Fecundity, by G. W. Demaree: perplexing observations following bee colony assessment
- Track #10 Bee-Men to the Front, by A. W. Fisk
