The 'Lost' Second Book of Nicoletto Giganti (1608): A Rapier Fencing Treatise Rediscovered and Translated
Nicoletto Giganti is possibly the greatest master of Italian fencing. The discovery of his second body of work, long thought lost (if it ever existed) for hundred of years, is very exciting indeed, and a major new contribution to the modern effort to rediscover the lost arts of defence. Curator of Arms and Armour at the Wallace Collection Tobias Capwell has written the foreward.
