I really enjoy looking at how beekeeping has changed over time. If you do, too, Amazon finally has Henry Taylor's "The Bee-Keeper's Manual" on Kindle with the original illustrations. Interesting, cheap, and worth taking a look at. It's amazing how some things are still the same a couple hundred years later!

Anyone have any other books on the history of beekeeping they can recommend?

there are several dozen in pdf format for free, but I can't say where to get them because a few imo are pirated. Just do a little research into torrent downloads

Henry Taylor the Bee-Keeper's Manual is a free ebook since it's in the public domain, hope you didn't pay for it. You can find it for download on Gutenberg plus a few more.
