Description

This volume offers an intriguing glimpse into the world of late medieval  martial arts, from wrestling to fencing with the longsword to the  subtle tricks that could be employed when jousting on horseback. Using  superb details of lively pen drawings highlighted with gold leaf, the  book features some of the most interesting selections from Fior di Battaglia  (The Flower of Battle), a manuscript by the renowned Italian fencing  master Fiore dei Liberi depicting the knightly arts of fighting with  swords, daggers, and polearms, on foot and on horseback, and in and out  of armor.
