This 1999 reprint of Derry Argue's 1977 edition of the 1906 2nd edition reproduces all 22 of the original plates. This printing has a new dust-wrapper illustration 'I will write a complete record of the Pointer.' Ever since I have been hunting up the materials at home and abroad, and to aid the pursuit I have been obliged to learn from its commencement the language of one of the countries involved in my research. ...My fitness for writing the practical part of this book mainly depends on my having been reared literally from earliest infancy among pure pointers, though afterwards I experimented, on my own account, with the houndy ones. For my father, dying when I was but a few weeks old, left instructions that his pointers were to be preserved for me, instructing Charles Ecob his favourite keeper, to look after my sporting education. His wishes were carried out to the letter, and no child could have had a kinder or more competent tutor; and it is owing to those early years of training that I have a working knowledge of and working trials; Characteristics of the pointer; Breeding and selection; Alien crosses; Shooting over dogs; Breaking; Kennel management; List of books.
