The World History of Beekeeping and Honey Hunting
Taylor & Francis, 1999 - 682 sivua
"The author, who was director of the International Bee Research Association for 35 years, provides extensive coverage of historical methodological information about bees, beekeeping, and honey. It is an excellent reference source with chapters about honey-storing insects throughout the world, the origins of hive beekeeping in ancient Egypt, controlling bees, drinks made from the fermentation of honey, and beeswax. Over 400 black-and-white drawings, diagrams, and woodcuts illustrate the book. This fascinating volume is a useful addition to all reference collections."--"Outstanding reference sources 2000", American Libraries, May 2000. Comp. by the Reference Sources Committee, RUSA, ALA.
