Originally published in 1906, The Pointer and His Predecessors is a highly researched guide to anything and everything relating to the pointing hunting dog. These hunting dogs primarily fall under the setter and pointer breeds, and Arkwright has included everything that an owner would need to know.

Characteristics of the Pointer
Breeding and Selection
Shooting Over Dogs

Amidst the plethora of factual information are Arkwright's own theories and anecdotes on the topic of pointing dogs. Arkwright discusses their origin as he pulls biblical quotes and examples to pinpoint where in history these hunting dogs were first spotted. He also recalls on his own experiences with the hounds to exemplify his passion for game dogs. The Pointer and His Predecessors is the top choice for anyone interested in hunting with dogs.

He spent years researching different breeds, training patterns, and detailed illustrations and maintained an avid hunting lifestyle with his wife, Agnes, for many years. He passed away at the age of sixty-seven in Devon, England, in February 1925.
