Very interesting to see Milanese sabre, from before the influence of Masiello, Parise, Radaelli etc - this looks almost like Angelo, but with more molinetti. A bit of a 'missing link'?

Very interesting indeed.
Delighted to stumble across this on google, as I had just about given up on trying to track it down via ILL.

It would appear that there was also a translation into German, published 1909.

Handbuch der Fechtkunst (vereinfachte Methode Blengini) für Florett, Degen, italienischen Säbel, Säbel gegen Bajonett, Säbel zu Pferd gegen Säbel zu Lanze ; mit erklärenden Abbildungen und einem Überblick über die Entwicklung der Fechtkunst

The only two copies that worldcat knows about are both in Germany...

There is an earlier Russian translation of his book, published in 1880.
Probably three separate (?) editions:

(A) 64 pages:
Бленджини, Ц. А. К.
Руководство современного фехтования на шпагах, саблях и штыках [] / Ц. А. К. Бленджини. - Санкт-Петербург : Тип. и хромолитогр. А. Траншеля, 1880. - 64 с. : ил. - Б. ц.

(B) 180 pages:
БЛЕНДЖИНИ, А.К.
ИЛЛЮСТРИРОВАННАЯ ШКОЛА НОВЕЙШЕГО ФЕХТОВАНИЯ НА ШПАГАХ И САБЛЯХ;ШКОЛА ДРЕВНЕГО ФЕХТОВАНИЯ НА ШПАГА...: COЧ. CИBEPБPИK (OTЦA И CЫHA). PУKOBOДCTBO K HOBEЙШEMУ ИTAЛЬЯHCKOMУ ФEXTOBAHИЮ HA ШПAГAX И CAБЛЯX [б. и.], 1880 г. ISBN 5-0362960-А

Another version from Google book:
Два руководства к фехтованію
Ц. А. К. Бленджини, Егор Сивербрик
Тип. и хромолитографія А. Траншеля, 1880 - 180 pages

Also Blengini published in 1880 the book written by a famous Russian fencing master Siverbrik (116 pages). He wrote the foreword, and also was the publisher, presumably with the permission of Siverbrik's son Jegor:
Сивербрик И.Е. Руководство к изучению правил фехтования на рапирах и эспадронах / сост. Егор Сивербрик [по рукописям заметок и ст. И.Е. Сивербрика] ; [предисл.: Альберт Бленджини, проф. фехтования]. – СПб. : изд. А.К. Бленджини, 1880. - 116 с.

Wow! Very cool. Anyone got a copy of any of those?

Worldcat seems to think that the only library holding a copy of the 1800 Russian text is in Japan...

It looks like there may have been a Danish translation as well

http://books.google.com/books?id=OZ82QwAACAAJ
Title Haandbog i Fægtning med Floret, Kaarde, Sabel, Forsvar med Sabel mod Bajonet og Sabelhugning tilhest
Author C. A. Blengini di Torricella
Published 1897
Length 134 pages

Or possibly Norwegian, too?
According to this record (not sure whether to believe it, since the title appears verbatim, the same as what above is listed as 'Danish')
