Book Description

Sept. 1 2011
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars All in one place... Nov. 10 2011
By Steve B - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I ordered this book after reading The Practical Beekeeper, also by Michael Bush. This is several different works compiled into one book. While this information is available other places, it's nice to have it together in one place. I have marked mine by book and it's easy to flip back and forth and compare the methods of the experts. Nice book if you're considering raising a few queens or many.

5.0 out of 5 stars Should be on the bookshelf of every hobby and professional queen rearer. Dec 2 2013
By Bob's Beekeeping - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
A collection of the major queen rearing books written over the pat 100 years and containing a wealth of information and different views on raising queens. Although there have been published some excellent books on queen rearing published in recent years (Morse, David Woodward to name two), queen rearing has not changed that much over the last 100 years and each of the books collected in this compendium describes the views and techniques of an important queen rearer. Each of the books included is a stand-alone section and contains its own index, thus there is not a single index at the end of the compendium and, if two or more authors describe the same technique, the technique will be covered in more tha one part of the book. This is an excellent source of information on queen rearing and should be on the bookshelf of every hobby and professional queen rearer.

I don't know whether I will ever make use of this excellent collection of specialized apiary information, but it is a welcome addition to my personal library.

I saw this book on TV, as a prop, in a show my wife was watching. That's not strictly true, though this book has been used as a prop. This book is a valuable bedside companion for beekeepers who want to get busy with queen raising. Classic literature reprinted and compiled. Easy to read font. My only complaint...the book's thick and heavy. So much wisdom to receive.
