The Art of Fencing: The Discourse of Camillo Palladini
Camillo Palladini's manuscript for his discourse on fencing is housed in the De Walden Library at the Wallace Collection, London. Hitherto unpublished and largely unknown, it is of central importance to a modern understanding of Italian rapier play in the sixteenth century. This stunning book, a joint endeavour between the Royal Armouries and the Wallace Collection, reproduces the 46 red chalk illustrations in the manuscript together with a transcription and translation of the original Italian text. It showcases a striking example of Renaissance swordsmanship, and is perfect for students of fencing, lovers of Italian art and sixteenth-century researchers.
