H., an English gentleman fencer who wrote a brief monograph in 1614 describing a simple method for fencing with both single rapier and rapier and... More > dagger. G. H.'s work is important in that he recognizes the impact of complication on the ability to make decisions in combat and has deliberately simplified his technical range to minimize these.

G. H. does not fully describe all of the elements of his practice, and the guide provides logical interpretations to address these gaps. The guide is designed for use by instructors in planning classes to teach G. H.'s method, and makes accessible the 6th of the series of English language fencing manuals published between 1594 and 1617.< Less

Salvator Fabris (1544-1618) was one of the most influential masters of the Italian rapier. His long career culminated with his employment as royal fencing master at the court of the king of Denmark,... More > Christian IV. It was the king himself who also sponsored the printing of his treatise Lo schermo, overo scienza d’arme (on fencing, or knowledge of arms), a lavishly-illustrated manual on the theory and practice of the Italian rapier first published in Copenhagen in 1606. Apart from explaining rapier alone, rapier and dagger and rapier and cape in painstaking detail, the treatise became the basis for a northern German fencing tradition that is documentable until well into the 1800’s. Admired by his contemporaries and celebrated by later fencing masters as “a name of the greatest reputation in our profession,” Fabris has also become a household name in the modern revival of historical martial arts. This book is a fully illustrated reprint of Tom Leoni’s English translation, originally published in 2005.< Less

It is to this King that La Touche boldly dedicated his treatise, "Les Vrays Principes de l'Espée seule", in 1670, and it is this treatise that could be seen as the first work to show how fencing evolved to accommodate the changing weapon. In this work, Reinier van Noort and Antoine Coudre present the first ever English translation of La Touche's "Vrays Principes", providing a fascinating view on the development of fencing in France at a time when the rapier gave way to the smallsword.< Less
