A rare and wonderful find for the beekeeping collector, a 1915 Roots Beekeeping Catalog - Loads of information and graphics of all sorts of vintage beekeeping supplies and equipment. Loads of illustrations, and a nice color section of vintage honey labels, which can be reproduced for your own homemade honey products.
A.I. Root provided the beekeeping public with outstanding quality bee equipment. He would settle for no less. He was a leader in the early bee package industry and the A.I. Root Company for many years raised queens and sold bees in addition to the equipment listed in their catalog. He was a prolific writer and filled pages of "Gleanings in Bee Culture" with lessons learned from the bees on a variety of topics. One of the best general books on bee practices was his creation of the "A B C of Bee Culture". It was later named, " The ABC and XYZ of Bee Culture." It continues to be updated and revised on a regular basis to this date.
