"The Westminster Kennel Club and the St. Louis Kennel Club, organizations interested in Pointers, imported a number of good ones and some which did not exactly please the American fancy. The St. Louis group imported "Sleaford" in 1877, but had indifferent success. Undaunted, they continued their importations. In 1877 they secured, through E.C. Stirling, the heavyweight, white and liver "Bow", imported by T.H. Scott. He proved to be a bench show winner and also placed in field trials." -- The Sportsman's Bookshelf, Volume XIII, Hunting Dogs and Their Uses: The Stackpole Company, Harrisburg, PA, 1951


"The St. Louis Kennel Club, however, was not discouraged by the poor success of their first importation (Sleaford), for the members were willing to spend large sums of money to obtain the best that England had to offer, and with this end in view continued to purchase. In 1878 T.H. Scott came over from England with a pointer named "Bow"." -- A.F. Hochwalt, 1923, The Modern Pointer


""Bow" was an upstanding pointer, dark liver and white in color. His head was more of the old type, but not too large to be in keeping with his body, for he was a heavyweight, well balanced, possessing splendid bone and substance. His neck was clean, and his back, loin and quarters showed strength. The tail was set on properly and tapered nicely from a stong root. His coat was of the pin-wire variety, and was characteristic of the Bangs, of which he was a scion, for his sire was old "Champion Bang", and his dam was "Davey's Luna", by "Cole", out of "Nell", descended in a direct line from the Moore of Appleby kennels. He was whelped in 1874; consequently, at the time of his appearance here in America, he was four years of age. His breeder was Sam Price, the Devonshire fancier and the owner of "Champion Bang". In England he won one first, two seconds and a third. Here in America he was placed a number of times, including the special for the best pointer at Boston in 1879. In field trials he won, or rather divided, second place in the free-for-all stake of the National Kennel Club field trials held at Patoka, Ill., in 1879, and third place with "Faust" in the brace stakes." -- A.F. Hochwalt, 1923, The Modern Pointer

National American Kennel Club Field Trial, click to enlarge "National American Kennel Club Inaugural Field Trial""
National American Kennel Club Inaugural Field Trial, November 24, 1879, Patoka, Illinois. -- from: "Field Trial Record of Dogs in America with other Authentic Statistics, 1874 (to July 1) 1907", by Maj. J.M. Taylor, 1907.


""Bow" was unquestionably the best of any of the importations up to this time, and being a son of "Bang", his services were sought after. He sired the well-known bench winner "Beaufort", when bred to the native "Beulah", and "Beaufort" was considered one of the handsomest pointers in his day. He also sired "King Bow" and the field trial winner "Psyche". There were other of his daughters which also became producers of field trial and bench show winners." -- Hochwalt, 1923


""Young Bang" (4994), liver and white; Mr. G. Lowe's, Old Ford Manor House, Hadley, Barnet, Herts; born 1874; by Bang -- Luna; 65lb. weight; fee, 5 guineas; sire of Priam, Scamp, and Gunner; kennelman, John Williams; railway and telegraph station, High Barnet (1 mile)." -- The Kennel Gazette, January 1883, Stud Dog Ad


"First among his sons ("Price's Bang"'s sons) is "Young Bang", a dog which became the sire of a number of good pointers that never left England. The two sons which are held in great reverence here in this country are "Croxteth" and "Priam". The former came to the United States among the earlier importations and at once began to attract attention as a performer and a sire. "Croxteth" may rightly be called the founder of the first important field trial family here in America, for through him came many of the winners, as well as the sires and dams of winners. "Priam" never came to the United States, but he sired a number of dogs which proved to be productive and among his sons two stand out very porominently. These were "King of Kent" and "Beppo III", both brought to America during the eighties. "King of Kent" created practically a new era in field trials, as well as bench shows, for among the field winners that he sired were "Rip Rap", "Maid of Kent", "Zig Zag", "Tapster", "Hal Pointer", "Kent Elgin", "Tick Boy", and other of lesser note, not to say anything of his many daughters which were winners as well as producers." "Beppo III", although bred exactly like "King of Kent", being by the same sire and out of a full sister to the dam of "King of Kent", did not establish a great field trial family, but his sons and duaghters were a great influence in various ways and many winners on the bench came through this line of breeding, in addition to the progeny which won in the field." -- Hochwalt, 1923
