THE SCIENTIFIC EDUCATION OF DOGS FOR THE GUN. By "H.H." (H. Nevill Fitt.) This early gundog training book was first published in London 1890, and is now very rare in its first edition. READ COUNTRY BOOKS have now republished it using the original text. This is one of the earliest books devoting the majority of its contents to the training to the gun of Pointers and Setters. The author writes from his then thirty seven years of practical experience, beginning with his first successfully trained Pointer as a teenager. Some of his methods will prove controversial, but the overall advice given in this book has easily stood the test of time and will benefit all first time trainers or anyone wishing to improve on their present methods. 220 pages contain sixteen detailed chapters dealing with:- "The Rationalle." - Kennel Management. - Retrievers ( 4 chapters). - Wild Fowling. - Pointers and Setters (8 chapters). - Field Trials. - Spaniels. The eight chapters concentrating on the "breaking" or training of Pointers and Setters will prove of enormous interest to shooting men, field triallers, and falconers. The author's admiration for the reasoning power of the dog, which makes itself evident on every other page, will assuredly be shared by all who read this book. Many of the earliest sporting books, particularly those dating back to the 1800s, are now extremely scarce and very expensive. READ COUNTRY BOOKS are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
