This is the very first, known Hungarian fencing book, published in 1839. The Hungarian title is Ví-tan, which can be roughly translated as Fencology. The online version is available at

and it has been uploaded by Sándor Németh. The book contains two sections: a) foil and b) sabre, and has rather decent illustrations.

The file isn't available via the above link. Domjan's book can be found at:

or via Google, search keywords: fencology scribd.
