Royal Armouries Manuscript I.33, also known as the Tower Fechtbuch or the Walpurgis Manuscript, is the oldest-known manual of swordsmanship in the western canon. Dated to the early fourteenth century, it is a stunning work of late medieval art and the Armouries' most treasured manuscript, one so famous it has become known simply by its shelf number: I.33. This new edition includes a critical introduction, transcription and translation by Jeffrey L. Forgeng, the foremost authority on I.33.

Review:

What a tour de force! Expertly analysed and impeccably edited, The Medieval Art of Swordsmanship is a superb addition to the growing corpus of scholarly publications on the medieval martial arts, and will stand as the definitive edition of this important manuscript for years to come. --Noel Fallows, Distinguished Research Professor, University of Georgia, USA; author of Jousting in Medieval and Renaissance Iberia

Royal Armouries Manuscript I.33 is a unique survivor and deserves to be widely known. Impeccably edited, meticulously annotated and accurately transcribed and translated, this facsimile with its erudite introduction does full justice to the earliest-known fencing manual. The volume should be studied not only by specialists in the history of personal combat but also (and far more so) by anybody interested in the history of movement notation, in medieval pedagogy, and in book illustration. --Sydney Anglo, Emeritus Professor in the History of Ideas, University of Wales; author of The Martial Arts of Renaissance Europe and L'escrime, la danse et l'art de la guerre

Royal Armouries MS I.33 is without doubt the most important early book of swordsmanship. It is essential for even a basic understanding of European martial arts, and Jeffrey Forgeng s new edition should be considered required reading for anyone interested in the history of weapons. --Tobias Capwell, Curator of Arms and Armour, The Wallace Collection; author of Armour of the English Knight 1400-1450
