    Default old online beekeeping books i found

    Hey,
    Here's an interesting book i found.
    The Mysteries of Beekeeping Explained by M. Quimby 1853
    http://www.gutenberg.org/etext/25185

    And "A Practical Treatise on the Hive and Honeybee" by L.L. Langstroth 1860

    I find this very exciting.

    Yes I agree, the old books that are out of copyright have more valuable information in them than most of the more modern books for beekeeping.

    I have both those books and more and have found a great resource on... http://books.google.com just do a search and limit the results to full view books only. Do a search for beekeeping. or Queen rearing. or search by author. I've found many nice old PDF format books there.

    As old as it is, it's still great reading.
