The Art of Fencing with Thrusting- and Cutting-Weapons By August Fehn & Tobias Zimmermann
Hardcover: $32.78
Prints in 3-5 business days
August Fehn was a military fencing master at the cadet school in Hannover in the middle of the 19th century. His work there ended only when Prussia annexed the previously independet Kingdom of... More > Hannover in 1866. In his manual published in 1851, Fehn describes not only thrust-fencing in the Kreussler tradition, but also cut-fencing from a hanging and a steep guard as well as cut-and-thrust-fencing with the Pallasch, a heavy cavalry backsword, and finally, his unique take on bayonet fencing. His modular approach in teaching all of these disciplines makes this one of the most interesting fencing manuals of the 19th century. In this book, Tobias Zimmermann presents a translation that aims to stay close to the original text while still being easily understandable for the modern reader, complemented by an introduction for more context and a glossary including all the technical terms occuring in the text.< Less

In 1905, Van Humbeek published his Handleiding voor het Sabelschermen, in which he gives a clear and useful description of sabre fencing, supported by 20 photographs that show the author demonstrating postures and techniques. Van Humbeek wrote that the style of fencing that he taught originated from Italy, and indeed his work fits well within the successful tradition started by the Italian maestro Radaelli, as, for example, described by Luigi Barbasetti a few years earlier. Central to this system are cuts that are made from the elbow rather than from the wrist.< Less

The Fencing Method of Angelo Viggiani: Lo Schermo, Part III By W. Jherek Swanger & Angelo Viggiani
Paperback: $12.00
Prints in 3-5 business days
Angelo Viggiani wrote "Lo Schermo" (the defense, or fencing method) in 1551, and it was published posthumously in 1575. In it he attempted to refine the swordplay of his day by imposing a... More > systematic nomenclature and by reducing the number of guards, parries, and attacks. He argues in favor of the superiority of the thrust, without abandoning the cut, and presents an extremely clear description of the lunge, executed from an overhand position, which he considers the most perfect attack. In addition, Viggiani discusses issues of combative advantage and provides insights into elements of body mechanics. This translation represents only "Book III" (i.e., the last of the three sections of Lo Schermo), which is the portion dealing with actual swordplay. This edition is a full revision of the translator's earlier version, improved for accuracy and clarity, and is the first thereof to see publication. It includes illustrations, notes, a summary essay, and glossary. Please see the preview.< Less
