1 Dadant & Sons; Edited. Beekeeping Questions and Answers.
Hamilton, Illinois: Dadant & Sons, (1978). First Edition, Stated. 
Octavo, gold cloth (hardcover), b&w photo. illus. endpapers, b&w photo. illus. throughout, 256 pp. Near Fine, with very light soiling to upper cover. From Preface: This book is very properly a child of The American Bee Journal. It was written over a period of several years by a variety of people under everchanging circumstances. The text is composed of questions submitted to The American Bee Journal and the answers we gave. Some of the questions are from our back files and appear in print for the first time and some of the answers have undergone canges as beekeeping knowledge, equipment, and management techniques have also undergone changes. Duplicate questions have been avoided wherever possible. The questions and answers range from the simple to the complex and they came from beekeepers, large and small, both experienced and beginner, from nearly every known spot in the world where bees and beekeepers live. The only common denominator was that they all contained problems and we tried to help. It has been estimated that there has been more written about bees and beekeeping than any other topic with the exception of religion and yet, there are still perhaps many more questions than answers. These particular questions and answers have been complied and edited into book form in the hopes that tey may answer your questions about bees and beekeeping.

3 Graham, Kenneth. Concepts of Forest Entomology.
New York: Reinhold Publishing Corporation, (1963). First Edition. 
Octavo, turqoise cloth (hardcover), x + 388 pp. Former-owner's published review pasted to rear endpaper; otherwise, Very Good+, with neat former-owner stamp & light foxing (age darkened spotting); in a Very Good, mylar protected dust jacket with light edgewear. From dust jacket: This book is designed to give the reader -- student, research worker, field forester and forest manager -- a survey of the place of forest entomology in the field of forest protection, and to explain the theory on which current insect control practices are based. It provides a procedural basis for these practices, i.e., the detection and identification of insects, the appraisal of hazard and damage, the analysis of causes, and the prevention of insect damage. The visial symptoms of infestation, involving three different structures of the tree are described as they would appear at various distances in the forest. Dr. Graham defines and explains the purposes, problems, theory and general methods of forest damage control. He discusses how an analysis of insect case histories, in relation to specific environmental conditions, will often reveal solutions to a variety of insect control problems. The book includes an original treatment of symptomatology. A unique table lists the principle orders and families of forest insects according to the targets of attack. An abundance of accurate line drawings of insects clearly illustrate important identification features. This book will enable the reader to appreciate the nature and significance of forest conditions caused by insects, the precautions and allowances that must be made in dealing with them, and the standards of accomplishment that may be expected in creating and maintinaing protection against them.

8 Spielman, Andrew and D'Antonio, Michael. Mosquito: A Natural History of Our Most Persistent and Deadly Foe.
New York: Hyperion, [2001]. First Edition, As Stated. 
Octavo, black cloth & grey board, (hardcover), xix, 247 pp. Fine, in a like dust jacket. “From its irritating whine to the itch of its bite, the mosquito is one of our least favorite creatures. Not merely a seasonal annoyance, this tiny insect delivers more illness to humanity than any other single living agent...Now, from a world-renowned expert on mosquitoes and a prize-winning reporter comes a lively and comprehensive portrait of the insect itself, its role in history, and its threat to mankind...They show us how mosquitoes breed, live, mate, and die, and introduce us to their enemies, both natural and man-made. The authors present tragic and often grotesque examples of how the mosquito has insinuated itself into human history, from the malaria that devaststed invaders of ancient Rome to the yellow fever epidemics that plagued the Civil War-era population of New Orleans, to the current widespread West Nile fever panic...Filled with little-known facts and remarkable anecdotes that bring this tiny being into larger focus, Mosquito offers fascinating, alarming, and convincing evidence that the sooner we get to know this little creature, the better off we'll be.”
