The American Bee Journal (10 Issues 1882-1884), Newman Thomas C. (editor)
5 Newman Thomas C. (editor) The American Bee Journal (10 Issues 1882-1884)
Chicago, Illinois Thoms C. Newman 1982 Various Issues Soft Cover Good 4to - over 9 
Oh, how I wanted these! There were 20 altogether, but half of them were too awful to contemplate. The ones I bought are not going to be given tiaras for beauty, but at least they're only reasonably flawed. What makes them flawed are these things: partial spines required archival tape of five issues; a chewed lower edge of the front cover of one and to the lower right corner of another; a small bit of fairly light foxing and damp staining somewhere on each. There's also some vertical creasing, but I am going to iron them ASAP and put them in the book press overnight. There are many topics, including these -- a boss colony, honey from corn, bees as weather prophets, wintering bees successfully, a "played-out queen", fertile workers, bee and honey shows, feeding bees, gleanings from Germany, pasturage for bees; black bees as honey gatherers, and marketing honey and wax. The ten issues measure 7-3/4" x 10-1/2" and are thin with a dense text. Great ads too on the back covers.
