Van Humbeek's Fencing with the Sabre By Reinier van Noort
Hardcover: $28.53
Prints in 3-5 business days
Leopold van Humbeek (1871-1942) was fencing master at the Royal Navy Academy in Amsterdam as well as at other military academies in the Netherlands, and at various civilian clubs. In 1912, he coached... More > the Dutch fencing team in sabre fencing at the Olympics in Stockholm, where the Dutch team took bronze in sabre and in épée. 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

Siebenhaar's instructions in the art of fencing By Reinier van Noort
Hardcover: $26.55
Prints in 3-5 business days
In the mid-19th century, not long after the Belgian war of independence, an experiment was taking place in fencing in the Netherlands. The main proponent of this experiment was Christiaan Siebenhaar... More > (1824-1885), fencing master in the Dutch army. In his own words, the purpose of this experiment was to "introduce the Dutch language in the art of fencing" so that "soon nobody is found in the Netherlands anymore who teaches this art in a foreign language". However, the real purpose of this experiment appears to have been more ambitious than that: to create a Dutch School of Fencing - to be known as de Hollandsche Methode. This book presents English translations of Siebenhaar's two works about fencing and its instruction. The first is his main treatise, Manual for the instruction in the art of fencing. This is followed by his Leads and directions for the instructor in the art of fencing. Combined, they present an interesting view into the development of fencing in the Netherlands in the 19th century.< Less

Scandinavian Smallsword By Reinier van Noort
Hardcover: $33.73
Prints in 3-5 business days
In the 18th century, Scandinavia was divided between the kingdoms of Sweden (which included most of modern Finland) and Denmark-Norway (which included Greenland, Iceland and parts of modern Germany).... More > Once the Treaty of Nystad ended the Great Northern War in 1721, it was a relatively stable and peaceful period for the two Nordic nations. Scandinavian Smallsword presents English translations of three fencing treatises published in Scandinavia in the 18th century. Von Wintzleben’s Fegte-kunst (Copenhagen, 1756) shows a style of fencing that has its foundation in the methods popular in Germany from the 17th century onwards. Vicard’s Fægte-kunsten (Copenhagen, 1765) demonstrates a decidedly French style of fencing. De Bada’s Fäcktare-konsten (Lund, 1733-1742), finally, describes a style of fencing that may have been based on the Spanish verdadera destreza. Together, these three books provide an interesting overview of the diversity of fencing instruction in 18th century Scandinavia.< Less

In the second half of the seventeenth century, the rapier commonly became lighter and shorter, with a smaller hilt, and eventually developed into the smallsword, also known as the court sword. Often,... More > this development is associated with France, and the court of its King, Louis XIV. 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

More > described a style of rapier fencing that evolved from the teachings of Fabris. He presents this style through a brief explanation of the principles of fencing followed by 212 lessons.

In 1664, Jéann Daniel L'Ange published the "Deutliche und gründliche Erklärung der adelichen und ritterlichen freyen Fecht-Kunst" in Heidelberg, Germany. This was one of... More > the first concise and systematic treatises on the typically German style of rapier fencing that evolved from the teachings of Fabris and his German students.

Bondì di Mazo's La Spada Maestra was published in Venice in 1696. It thus affords a valuable insight into the culmination of the use of the Italian rapier before it was ultimately supplanted... More > by the adoption of the smallsword and the development of classical fencing. In this extensively illustrated work, di Mazo discusses and demonstrates a lively style of fencing characterized by dynamic use of measure, evasions such as the inquartata, use of both edge and point, and grips and disarms.

This book is the first complete English translation of La Spada Maestra. It includes a brief introduction with historical notes, and annotations in the form of footnotes, appendices, and glossaries. Above all, it is clearly written so as to be readily understood and usable to scholars and practitioners of the Western martial arts. Click on “Preview” to see sample pages.< Less
