This facsimile edition of the famous I.33 sword and buckler manual is a must for serious historical fencers and sword fighters, including HEMA and the SCA. In a historical, two-sided binding, it contains a complete reproduction of the entire text of the world's oldest existing martial arts manual, as well as a side-by-side comparison of the original pages and a modern English translation.
The binding is a dos-a-dos long-stitch binding made of rawhide, a sturdy and historically accurate material, with leather reinforcement on the two spines. The book is approximately 7 inches tall, 5 inches wide, and contains 208 pages.
