Bee-Keeping in America


THIS is a book on bee-keeping in the United States. The author is a well-known bee-keeper, and an entertaining writer; he has a happy way of briefly explaining the chief operations of the apiary in a personal style that does not weary the reader. Dr. Lyon tells us that many years ago he acquired the “bee fever,” “from which he has never recovered, and never expects to recover.” The chief symptoms of this affection, enthusiasm and optimism, pervade his book, but he is careful not to exaggerate the profits of bee-keeping; the methods and appliances he describes are all well known and well tried, though some of them are unsuited to bee-keeping in England.

How to Keep Bees for Profit.

By Dr. D. E. Lyon. Pp.xii+329. (New York: The Macmillan Company; London: Macmillan and Co., Ltd.,1910.) Price 6s. 6d. net.
