This is for all of you who are fans of French fencing in its various forms. P.T. Crawley has translated into English several French fencing books. Here is a small selection:
- Girard’s “A Method for Smallsword & Spadroon”:
- Leboucher’s “Theory for Learning the Cane in 25 Lessons”
- Daniel O’Sullivan’s “The Practice of Fencing”
Those are free for download and highly readable, and I recommend you check them out when you get a chance. For all of Mr. Crawley’s works, check out his Lulu page here.
