Jefferson organized his library along the principles of the Enlightenment - Memory, Reason, and Imagination - and subdivided the subjects into 44 chapters. In chapter 15 we are introduced to Jefferson's miscellany. Tucked away in the gap between Memory and Reason is the Technical Arts Chapter - a bit of a catch-all containing Jefferson's hobbies, a bit of contemporary science, a touch of applied technology, card games, and other amusements. Alongside books on education, shorthand, gardening, accounting, military strategy, brewing, and book-keeping is a single volume on bee-keeping -- Stephen White's Collateral Bee Boxes...or Method of Managing Bees. London, 1764. (Sowerby 1187). Unlike other areas of farming and husbandry, Jefferson did not pursue becoming a bee-keeper. In fact bees and honey are only briefly mentioned by him, but there are a number of entries in his Memorandum recording the purchase of beeswax, and occasionally honey. However, Edmund Bacon, Jefferson's overseer, was a bee keeper and maintained a large stand. There are drawings of Monticello that depict bee-houses near the poultry yards. Jefferson did mention the honey-bee in his Notes on the State of Virginia "The honey-bee is not a native of our continent. The Indians concur with us in the tradition that it was brought from Europe; but, when, and by whom, we know not. The bees have generally extended themselves into the country, a little in advance of the white settlers. The Indians therefore call them the white man's fly, and consider their approach as indicating the approach of the settlements of the whites."

Beekeeping is a sixteen-billion-dollar-a-year business. But the invaluable honey bee now faces severe threats from diseases, mites, pesticides, and overwork, not to mention the mysterious Colony Collapse Disorder, which causes seemingly healthy bees to abandon their hives en masse, never to return. In The Quest for the Perfect Hive, entomologist Gene Kritsky offers a concise, beautifully illustrated history of beekeeping, tracing the evolution of hive design from ancient Egypt to the present. Not simply a descriptive account, the book suggests that beekeeping's long history may in fact contain clues to help beekeepers fight the decline in honey bee numbers. Kritsky guides us through the progression from early mud-based horizontal hives to the ascent of the simple straw skep (the inverted basket which has been in use for over 1,500 years), from hive design's Golden Age in Victorian England up through the present. He discusses what worked, what did not, and what we have forgotten about past hives that might help counter the menace to beekeeping today. Indeed, while we have sequenced the honey bee genome and advanced our knowledge of the insects themselves, we still keep our bees in hives that have changed little during the past century. If beekeeping is to survive, Kritsky argues, we must start inventing again. We must find the perfect hive for our times. For thousands of years, the honey bee has been a vital part of human culture. The Quest for the Perfect Hive not only offers a colorful account of this long history, but also provides a guide for ensuring its continuation into the future.
