9781891448232: The Art of Dueling: Salvator Fabris' rapier fencing treatise of 1606

The Italian Rapier has held a special place in the history of European swordsmanship. Famous for generations after his death, Salvatore Fabris became the personal fencing master to the equally famous King Christianus of Denmark. Towards the end of his career, and at the king's request, the great master set down the sum of his art in clear in a clear, concise manual of footwork, guards, attacks, defenses, and conterattacks with the rapier, used alone or with a dagger or cloak. A landmark work brought to English for the very first time, Tomasso Leoni offers a complete translation that accompanies the 200 17th century engravings.
