Writing in the mid-15th century, Master Paulus Kal was the agent, confidante and fencing master to the powerful Duke of Ludwig IX of Bavaria-Landshut. In his fencing book, prepared for this ducal patron, he presented standard and variant techniques in the tradition of Johannes Liechtenauer, in beautifully rendered and highly detailed illuminations of figures wielding the sword, sword and buckler, dagger, messer (falchion), spear and poleaxe, plus mounted combat. This English translation is presented in full-colour, oversize leather edition, complete with a protective slipcase.

About the Author:

Paulus Kal was a fifteenth-century German fencing master. His treatise is the first attempt to give pictorial representations of Liechtenauer's tradition of fencing. Christian Henry Tobler has been a longtime student of swordsmanship, especially as it applies to the pursuit of the chivalric ideals. A passionate advocate f the medieval Liechtenauer School, his work in translating and interpreting Sigmund Ringbeck's commentary firmly established him as an important contributor to the growing community of Western martial arts.
