The School of Fencing

‘Domenico Angelo's book, complete with diagrams, embodies the ideas of an era.’ 
Philip Stafford in The Times Literary Supplement

‘This is a fascinating read and surprisingly up to date. Every fencer will learn from it . . . Very highly recommended.’
The Sword

‘If there is one book on smallsword technique that a person should have in their collection, Angelo’s treatise is certainly that book.’ 
JL Forgeng in Man At Arms magazine

Domenico Angelo’s The School of Fencing was first published in 1763 as L’Ecole des armes and was one of the most popular and influential treatises of its time. Today, it remains essential reading for any historical swordfighter, student of martial arts, or military historians, giving the reader access to one of the great masters of the art. 

This modern edition is annotated by Maestro Jeannette Acosta-Martinez, who is currently the foremost expert in the French small sword. Her additions to this edition help clarify Angelo’s text for the modern reader. This edition also includes an Introduction by the editor, Jared Kirby, which gives a short history of Angelo’s life.
