We are pleased to present this very rare mid 1500's book on European fighting techniques and weapons from hundreds of years ago.

Compiled by Paulus Hector Mair, who was an Augsburg civil servant, and active in the martial arts of his time. Mair collected artial Arts books, which was then comiled into one massive volume of sword fighting knowledge.

For this, he engaged the painter Jörg Breu the Younger, as well as two experienced fencers, whom he charged with perfecting the techniques before they were painted. The project was very costly, taking full four years, and according to Mair, consumed most of his family's income and property.

Not only did Mair spend huge sums on his collections and on his projects, he also had a very expensive lifestyle, frequently hosting receptions for the more important burghers of Augsburg. His own income was not sufficient for this, and during many years, he misappropriated funds from the city treasury, with the supervision of which he had been entrusted since 1541. His embezzlements were discovered in 1579, and Mair was hanged as a thief at the age of 62." From Wikipedia

This {2} two volume set features some 750 amazing hand colored pages. These volumes show very detailed use of swords and other fighting weapons of the time including long swords, spears, pikes and various other edged and pointed weapons. You can now learn the techniques of armored knights.
