Description
 
A beautiful and informative photographic album about beekeeping in Poland. A monumental work covering the 1000 year old history of Polish apiculture. This album includes current and historical photographs mostly in full color. As you will see folk art played a major role in the design and construction (literally hand carved) of many types of past and present hives. An index of Polish museums featuring exhibits is included.  Test is in both Polish and English.

"In front of you is an unusual publication - for the very first time it was possible to collect so many documentary photographs and publish them in just one volume presenting the history of primitive and modern beekeeping, recorded in the monuments of material culture, scattered all around Poland - in museums, open air museums and private apiaries. The text inspired by passion and knowledge of the subject walks the reader through centuries, telling the stories of people who created the history of beekeeping, and of bees and their fascinating behavior. In this album you can find historical photographs which are published very rarely (some of them have never been published before) as well as beautiful pictures wonderfully supplemented by the Poet's commentary - verses by Rev. Jan Twardowski.

This album contains also an index of Polish beekeeping museums and open-air museums, which can be used as a guide to the most interesting monuments of beekeeping" ~Jacek Kowalczyk
