HASH(0xb3c7fa98) out of 5 stars The Best Honeybee Naturalist March 26 2012
By Carl Chesick - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Kudos to Michael Bush for making this brilliant work available in a clear and readable format! Until now, one had to be very persistant to find Huber's observations in any form - but reading them reveals a clarity of thought rarely glimpsed. LL Langstroth was well-aware of Huber's discoveries and gave full credit in his day - but time has muddied the waters and clouded the genius of this blind man's methods. Many of the things we now know of honeybees were deciphered nearly two hundred years ago - and you can follow the logic of Huber's investigations as if you are there with him.

Personally, I find the older naturalists to be more original and compelling in their writing - and if you are a modern beekeeper, you will be surprised how much of the information in this book is still relevant today.

HASH(0xb3952da4) out of 5 stars One Stop Shopping March 19 2012
By Dwight V. West - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Started out with Practical Bee Keeper which wet my whistle and working thru Huber's New Observations Upon Bees to gather the historical and nitty gritty that contributed to the Practical Bee Keeper. Join a local Bee Keepers Club and acquire both these books to compliment a naturalist approach to bee keeping.

Bush has done an amazing job bringing this to beekeepers everywhere. His no nonsense approach to beekeeping is refreshing to say the least. If you want to keep bees, this book is essential.............z

This book is definitely part of the TwoDronesApiary library!

What an undertaking by beekeeper Michael Bush to get his book to print, in English. I for one, really appreciate it. Compiling both Volumes into one book, as well as, updating the illustrations and adding additional information (such as the memoir of Huber by De Candolle and letters from Huber), is a gift to every beekeeper, that keeps on giving. Sure, some of the techniques/ideas/thoughts have changed since Huber's original publishing of Vol I in 1809, but I purchased the book to enjoy the history of beekeeping and its techniques.

If you enjoy learning about beekeeping and beekeeping history, you will enjoy this book. Fifty bucks is a small price to pay for the information within!

Huber, blind from age fifteen, has developed more insight into honey bees than anyone sense. If there is a "bible" of beekeeping, then this is it. The detail of his experiements, the deligence of his investigations, and the detail which he documents is impressive. Thank you to Michael Bush for bringing this into a presentable form in English.
