The Hive and the Honeybee

Selections from the E.F. Phillips Beekeeping Collection at Mann Library

The Everett F. Phillips' Beekeeping Collection at Cornell's Albert R. Mann Library is one of the largest and most complete apiculture libraries in the world. The Hive and the Honey Bee grew out of a presentation on the Phillips collection at the 2002 Eastern Apiculture Society conference and is something of a digital child of that print collection. Having first started out as an initial collection of ten titles deemed to be among the most historically important books in the Phillips library, with the support of beekeepers across the United States The Hive and the Honeybee has since grown to include over thirty key monographs as well as the first forty volumes of the American Bee Journal, covering the years 1861 through 1900 of that landmark publication. Each volume of this growing digital collection is available in full text format and is fully searchable.
