An Economico-Philosophical Discourse on Bee Culture

By J.F.E. Albrecht (TRANS F. Vernon)

This booklet is a translation from the Latin, by Frank Vernon of  the thesis submitted in 1770 by J.F.E. Albrecht for his Doctorate examination.

Albrecht was born in 1752 at Slade in Hanover and practiced medicine in  Estonia. He published a treatise on beekeeping in 1775  entitled ‘Anatomical and Physical discovery of the correct management of bees as well as the manner of their generation’  and this translation may well be the basis for the later work.

It will be of interest to all beekeepers as it shows that much of our present understand of bees and beekeeping is originally grounded in knowledge common over 300 years ago.

The thesis was dedicated to George III of Great Britain, then also elector of Brunswick, showing the historical ties between the UK and Europe.
