A compendium of classic queen rearing books by G.M. Doolittle, C.C. Miller, Henry Alley, Jay Smith, Isaac Hopkins and Frank Pellett with an overview by Michael Bush. These are the foundation of almost all queen rearing done today, all in one binding. These men laid the groundwork and worked out the details of practical systems of queen rearing. Pellet did a lot of distilling down of the various systems, which is very valuable, Smith perfected a lot of what Doolittle started. Miller and Hopkins were the queen rearing examples for the beekeeper who just wanted a few good queens for themselves. If you want to raise queens, these books are the place to start.
