Products description

A "lost" Fechtbuch from the context of Paulus Hector Mair.

The secret of the lost manuscript: Hidden in the vaults of a New York Antiquarian until its chance discovery in 2005, the Codex Amberger remained unknown even to the most knowledgeable experts on the history of European martial arts. Originally attributed to Albrecht Dürer, now associated with the notorious Paulus Hector Mair from Augsburg, this manuscript had probably been part of a much larger body of work, which remains lost.

Although short of content, its magnificent full colour illustrations place the codex among the most opulent publications on historical European martial arts ever produced!

It took HEMA historians Dierk Hagedorn and J. Christoph Amberger a decade to devise a concept to make this important book available for scientific research as well as ambitious practitioners. This edition presents the complete codes in print for the first time.
In addition to the original size illustrations it contains complete pictorial references of all the close combat techniques presented, from nine contemporary sources, confirming the codex' status within the tzradition of German fighting books.
Texts are in the original early modern German, Latin, and Walloon, with translations into modern German and English.

Hardcover, landscape format. 144 pp., 16 full page illustrations, 97 reference images. Text in English and German. Bibliothek der historischen Kampfkünste vol. 6.
