This volume contains a comprehensive treatise on hunting dogs, with a special focus on history and notable dog breeders. It provides an authentic insight into late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century English hunting, and it is highly recommended for those with an interest in traditional rural pursuits. Contents include: "The Pointer", "A Brief Survey of Early English and American History", "The Graphic Family and Their Contemporaries", "King of Kent, Mainspring, Osborne Ale, Duke of Hesson, Luck of the Goat", "The Rise of the Salter Pointers", "The Families of Rip Rap and Jingo", "The New Stars", "Alford's John", "Fishel's Frank", "Manitoba Rap", etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in a modern, high-quality edition complete with specially commissioned new introduction on gun dogs.
