Language: French. A prior owner or perhaps the publisher has corrected a sentence on p. 160; no other owners' marks; the pages are foxed, palely but frequently, throughout, and there is a slight ripple through the page block, otherwise clean and intact; the binding is square and tight; there are spots of rub-through in the green leather spine, particularly at the ends and along the right edge, but the gilt designs and lettering remain clear and bright; there is also some scuffing on the hard cover surfaces and taps at the free corners, otherwise sound and well-preserved. 319 pp. with 20 full-page engravings. A manual for the study of fencing which presents a history of the art together with an original method.
