    Default Honey Farming, R.O.B Manley- now downloadable pdf

    A new found friend advised that Honey Farming, ROB Manley, often recommended on this forum by M.Palmer and others is now available on the net as a downloadable pdf
    Of course- you won't get the soul of beekeepers past by ordering a used edition- but still- quite handy!

    This is a wonderful book and ought to be required reading for anyone serious about beekeeping. Now that the PDF is available, price and "I can't find a copy" are no longer acceptable excuses. Thanks MP for turning me on to Manley.

    Does not seem to be a legitimate use under copyright; read the first page of the pdf.

    This book is copyrighted 1946. In 1946 I believe the maximum length of time an author could copyright his work was 46 years, so this copyright would likely be expired, unlike today when the copyright extends for the author's lifetime plus 90 years. As to the notation on the first page, they can claim anything they like. That does not automatically mean they are correct or what they claim is legal. I seriously doubt anyone is going to get in any kind of trouble downloading and reading this book. Now, if you want to reprint it for sale, that would be a different story.
