This beautifully illustrated and detailed book presents one of the world's most influential fencing treatises. Ridolfo Capo Ferro was a legend in his own lifetime and his intricate and exact instructions were copied and emulated throughout Europe. Illustrated with 43 striking plates, this book gives a very real flavor of the panache of this expert in swordsmanship and mastery of the rapier. Capo Ferro's text is a practical guide to fencing and one which builds on the theory to show exactly how a superior form of swordsmanship could be learned by Europe's elite. Presented by fencing expert Jared Kirby, this handsome volume is not only attractive to look at, it is also a vital historical record.
