This journal is very scarce! It's packed with information for apiarists, and is a fascinating look at 19th-century American beekeeping. Includes advice sections, a letterbox with submissions from beekeepers throughout the United States, a "correspondence" section with short article submissions on various topics, a directory of conventions, ads for beekeeping equipment. It's also a gorgeous example of graphic design of this era!
46 pages. Very good condition with mild creasing; very clean.
