    As far as I can find out the copyright ran out a long time ago. But I will be trying to get the pictures and illustrations scanned later.

    I remember reading about this system a long time ago but this is the first time I have seen a thorough description. I love his writing style. I've saved the whole thing on my computer. Thanks.

    Thank you Michael!

    I've been trying to locate a copy of that book for a couple of weeks now without any success. Thanks so much for sharing it. This is like Christmas in November! A couple of days ago I managed to find a copy of Queen Rearing Simplified and am anxiously awaiting it's arrival.

    Thanks again Michael.

    If there was, I wouldn't have spent three days typing it in. My hands still hurt.

    I wish we could all go out to Nebraska and lend some hands so you could rest yours after what you've done for us.

    I havent read his method yet....havent gottan that far but when Mr. Smith said that grafting does not produce quality queens, I think about the quality of queens from Ol Sol, Purvis brothers, Honey run Apiaries, and Kona.

    Jay Smith Literally "wrote the book" on grafting. He probably grafted more queens than anyone in history and probably advised more people on grafting than anyone. But he was always looking for "Better Queens". His "Queen Rearing Simplified" is one of the more quoted books on the grafting method. Someday, maybe I'll get time to type that one in...

    Michael types it in and everyone prints it back out. That just doesn't seem right. So, in an effort to save a tree or two, I converted the text to Palm Reader format for anyone who has a Palm device and wants to carry the book around.

    You can grab it here.

    www.hillsidegreenhouse.com/bees/

    I didn't do any formatting, but it displays pretty well as is.

    Even though the screen on a Palm is small, I use the Palm Reader a lot. I can carry around a dozen books and not hurt my back.
