Matt, this is a wonderful book, but I can't find any sections on smallsword or broadsword, only wrestling and boxing (and riding, sailing, running, jumping, skating, etc. :-)

Am I missing something?

Aha, on page 298 I found a reference to an upcoming work by the author: "British defensive excercises" which seems to contain the swordy bits. Along with how to handle a musket, lance, pistol and rifle. I wonder if it ever was published and is available? It doesn't seem to be scanned by Google yet, at least.

Hmm, there are two versions there - those sections are in neither?

Nope. It appears to have been a separate book.
