Is that the supposed re-edition of the 1798 "Roworth"? If so, the illustrator changed.

Good find, Matt. Thanks a lot.

I had it (or a very similar edition) in the blue tartan book (Highland broadsword, Paul Wagner and Marc Rector), but now I can make all my sabre students read it without having to let them borrow my book :-)

Yes I had this already in Wagner and Rector's book, but it's nice to have it online and printable.

Carlo, I don't think you would enjoy sitting on a shelf waiting to be pawed over by novice sword students. :lol:
