Michał Starzewski’s treatise “On Fencing” (c.1830s)

Postby KeithFarrell » Mon Jun 10, 2013 8:37 am

Daria Izdebska has just finished her translation of Michał Starzewski’s treatise “On Fencing” (c.1830s), the earliest known existing treatise on the subject of Polish sabre. The document has been made available through the website of the Academy of Historical Arts, and we are very proud and honoured to be able to host such a valuable translation!
