This edition has an updated candle making section and more on wax casting than the previous printed versions. In 1981 Beeswax was the first UK published book on the subject for nearly 75 years since Cowan�s Waxcraft. It contains details on the history, chemical content, and the many uses of beeswax. The illustrations are carefully chosen to make this a practical book for the beekeeper, wax candle and polish maker as well as the interested reader. Paperback.
