Great idea for a new forum Barry!

Thought it would be nice to post links where people can find some of the old beekeeping publications. Here is an online copy of the original 1853 book Hive and the Honey Bee by Langstroth:

Here's one that I was just reading from. It was published in 1922.

This site has pdf's and ebooks of many old bee texts. Just do some searches. I am reading Millers "40 years among the bees" now. It is a good read.
