How to Fence
by Aaron A. Warford

A New System of Broad and Small Sword Exercise
by Thomas Stephens
A double guide on the techniques of sword fighting

This unique Leonaur volume brings together two excellent books about the techniques of fighting with hand held weapons with edge and point. This good value guide will interest weapons collectors, modellers, painters and illustrators, re-enactors, theatrical production companies and all those interested in swords and their use by the military particularly during the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries. Warford’s well illustrated text is of wider interest than its title implies in that as well as providing an excellent fencing guide, it also enters into some detail about fighting with the broadsword and includes a chapter on archery. Stephens’ book is very much a military manual. It demonstrates the use of the broad and small swords. The striking illustrations show the correct use of the weapons in combat situations for both infantry and cavalry.
Leonaur editions are newly typeset and are not facsimiles; each title is available in softcover and hardback with dustjacket; our hardbacks are cloth bound and feature gold foil lettering on their spines and fabric head and tail bands.
