50 Years Among the Bees: by C. C. Miller.

Written in 1911 and considered a beekeeping classic.

Best not to use that PDF, since it's transcribed, and one cannot tell if anything was changed. There are 3 editions on Archive:
https://archive.org/search.php?query=fifty%20Years%20Among%20the%20Bees&and[]=creator%3A%22miller%2C+c.+c.+%28charles+c.%29%2C+1831-1920%22

Any of these would be an acceptable text source. :)

Thanks,
The pdf was all I could find and I wasn't navigating Archive very well, so your link is very helpful.

I have a hard copy of this book.

How do we get this book read? I would certainly be interested in seeing it in audio format :)

Would this gentleman's earlier work be of interest? https://archive.org/details/yearamongbeesbei00mill/page/n3/mode/2up

I think we could get this one done, though it does not have the wisdom and experience found in the later work. Its advantage is that it is shorter. The topic is something of a specialized interest and we have no honey to attract readers.
