Drawing on the manuscript scans, transcriptions, and translations hosted by Wiktenauer, this book offers the first ever compilation of the 15th century glosses of Johannes Liechtenauer's famous Recital. Each page contains a single play of the long sword or short sword, carefully laid out with the relevant glosses of Sigmund ain Ringeck, Peter von Danzig, Pseudo-Peter von Danzig, and Pseudo-Hans Döbringer side by side, and where applicable illustrated with gorgeous full-color scans from the Goliath Fechtbuch, the Glasgow Fechtbuch, and the treatises of Paulus Kal and Hans Talhoffer. In this way, it offers the most complete perspective possible on the tradition of Johannes Liechtenauer as it was recorded in the mid 15th century. All profits from the sale of this book go to supporting the Wiktenauer project.
