This is an introductory guide to broadsword fencing and quarterstaff sparring, first published in 1862. The lessons within this volume are based on the contemporary European style used in military schools in France and Italy. With simple instructions and helpful illustrations, "Broadsword Fencing and Stick or Quarter-Staff Play" is ideal for beginners and young learners alike, and is not to be missed by collectors of vintage sporting literature.
