Jude Lew: Das Fechtbuch
by Dierk Hagedorn

Volume 5 of the Library of Historical Martial Arts

The Jude Lew is, like so many medieval fencing masters, a mysterious figure. Nevertheless, five books of fifteenth and sixteenth books contain his teachings, but only one manuscript from Augsburg is inseparable from his name.

Lews writings are closely related to Johannes Liechtenauer, the fencing master, around whom no one is studying medieval martial arts. Liechtenauer's fencing art is handed down in several strands; Two of which are based on Peter von Danzig and Sigmund Ringeck, have already been extensively published; Only the tradition of the Jude Lew has so far been scarcely appreciated.

For the first time, this volume presents its complete manuscript from the middle of the 15th century. The comparison with the other tradition lines shows the appeal and the importance of this handwriting. This edition highlights the special features of the Jude-Lew Fechtbuch, and it contains not only an annotated transcription, but also transmissions into modern German and English. The volume is rounded off by a detailed codicological description and a glossary.

This is probably my favorite of the various fechtbuchs I've looked over. I would highly recommend this sell-out together volume.

5 of 5 Wonderful book April 24, 2018
Reviewer: Seiji Yokota from Davis, CA United States  
Bought this for my girlfriend and she loves it! It comes in  the original German, modern German, and English. We both study German language so it's really nice to have all three translations so we can try to get at the essence of what Jud Lew is trying to say. Our favorite part of the book is the introduction as it provides much historical context. We hope that future books of this kind are published!
