The 19th Century produced an explosion of innovators and inventors who perfected the design and production of beehives, systems of management and husbandry, stock improvement by selective breeding, honey extraction and marketing. Preeminent among these innovators was AMOS IVES ROOT who pioneered the manufacture of hives and the distribution of bee-packages in the United States.
Amos Ives Root (1839 – 1923) developed innovative beekeeping techniques in the United States during the mid-19th century, a period when the industry played an important role in the economy of many communities. He founded his own company, which continues in business to the present day. His wide-ranging interests and curiosity led him to become the only eyewitness to publish articles about successful airplane flights made by the Wright brothers in Ohio in 1904-1905.He began his career as a jewelry manufacturer and took up beekeeping in his twenties as a hobby. Among his major contributions was a method to harvest honey without destroying the beehive. He became a nationally- and internationally-known expert and a wealthy businessman. He lived and worked in Medina, Ohio. This book has been quite instrumental and popular, it is still being reprinted today.This book was originally published in 1877. In its first original release, the object of the book was to collect, condense, verify and utilize information for the public. It has been well over sixty-eight years that his release was offered. Since then, it had run through many editions, enlarged and revised. A.I. Root's first book was designed primarily for beginners. Later on there came a call for a book which would cover the need of the more advanced as well as that of the beginner. In the meantime, Mr. Root's health had begun to fail and it became necessary for him to call in an assistant to do the work which he was psychically unable to carry through. This book showcases the achievements and accomplishments as well as how the world profited by his mistakes. As the industry developed, it required a larger work and updated editions. This work is attributed to A.I.'s son who took over most of the work. E. R. Root has added considerably in the pioneer work of his father. In the 1935 edition, it was built around the food chamber, developed by the late George S. Demuth. The 1940 and 1945 editions have been built around the doctrine of Pollen Reserves, as given on pages 510 and 513 of this volume. Hone has received rather special treatment. Anyone who is interested in the study of honey should look first under the head of HONEY, and then take up the sub titles in their alphabetical order. Under Honey, Food Value of, are various statements by Dr. Bodog F. Beck, of New York City, a specialist in the use of BEE VENOM in the treatment of rheumatism and and arthritis, and also an ardent advocate of honey for the sick and the well. The 1945 Index has been prepared with the greatest of care. The reader should consult this index often, especially the cross references from one subject to another in the general body of the work. To most of the scientific subjects there is attached a bibliography. Little did A. I. Root dream in 1879 that his work would continue to grow, not only in the size of the book itself, but in the size of editions. The original work consisted of 212 pages while this present volume contains 720. Included are actual black and white photographs, charts and illustrations through out the book. There has been such a rapid advancement in bee culture. I'm sure this book even has out-dated information to an extent but as previously mentioned, A. I. Root was innovative in his field, which his company is still in existence today selling quality candles. Published in 1945 this book is in EXCELLENT CONDITION for its age; especially to be 67 YEARS OLD. Including an Index, there are 720 pages in this 6 1/4" X 9 " volume.
