Treatise or Instruction for Fencing: By Hieronymus Calvacabo of Bologna and Patenostrier of Rome by Rob Runacres

In 1597 the great French traveller Seigneur de Villamont translated a fencing manuscript by his teacher, Girolamo (in French 'Hieronyme') Cavalcabo of Bologna, along with a shorter piece by Paternostrier of Rome. This treatise seems to have brought Cavalcabo to the attention of the French court and he, and later his son César, would be invited to teach the future Louis XIII.

Now translated into English, this treatise offers an insight into the fighting style of the period
