About this book

This small book is not at all like other bee books. It is the distillation of the knowledge gained by Willie and his father Selby over very many years and that also that gleaned from W.W. Smith--Scotland's first commercial beekeeper and the inventor of the hive of this name, who was a close family friend. As such its value is not in sections, as in other books, of what to do in spring, summer or winter, but it ranges over all the major problems as seen by a commercial man and suggests many answers based on experience. Willie and his wife Daphne run a most successful honey operation in Northumberland, perhaps the most successful in the country. This book falls into the first rank of importance in beekeeping literature with Bro Adam, Manley and Sims.
