Book Description

1 Dec 1999
Its story is of especial interest to English readers, for, curiously enough, it is in England that the true character of ancient sword-play, and its evolution towards the highly perfect art which we now call fencing, was first elucidated. Investigation of the doctrines of ancient masters of fence and bibliographic compilation of fencing works were things naturally bound to go hand in hand: both are virtually branches of what is now becoming the fashion to speak of as Kernoozing. And this investigation belongs to quite modern times.

5.0 out of 5 stars An invaluable listing of our Western martial heritage 28 Sep 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Thimm offers the most complete listing of historical fencing manuals and was one of the most thorough of Victorian era sword scholars. Most importnatly his material lists texts which actually still exist today and are being studied once again. - John Clements, HACA Director

By Anita Evangelista - Published on Amazon.com
Thimm's bibliography is one of the unique fencing related volumes of the nineteenth century. Along with Castle's "Schools and Masters of Fence," it should be in every fencing library. As the author of "The Art and Science of Fencing," "The Inner Game of Fencing," and "The Encyclopedia of the Sword;" and the Editor-in-Chief of FENCERS QUARTERLY MAGAZINE, I recommend it.
