Description


First published in 1892, "Foil and Sabre" is a comprehensive, step-by-step guide to fencing. It aims to provide the student with a complete course of instruction in the contemporary European fencing style, and does so plainly and with the aid of simple illustrations. This volume is perfect for beginners and experienced fencers alike, and it is not to be missed by collectors of vintage fencing literature. Contents include: "Historical Outline of Fencing in France", "The School at Joinville-le-Pont", "The New Academy of Arms", "Physical Development", "Instruction", "Preliminary Definitions", "Manner of Holding the Foil", "Position of Attention", "The Position of On Guard", "The Advance. La Marche", "The Retreat. La Retraite", etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on fencing.
