LB's translation from his original text in Italian ("La scherma di spada, A. Gattinoni, 1902" of which I've only seen the first couple sections, in digital form)

Thanks to the B&N reprint, the English language version is not an especially difficult or expensive book to find used, at least here in the States. The dustjacket is however extremely misleading.

Title The Art of the Foil: With A Short History of Fencing
Author Luigi Barbasetti
Publisher Dutton, 1932
Length 276 pages


There's also a German version (which I've not yet been able to look at myself)
Title: Das stossfechten
Author: Luigi Barbasetti
Publisher: Wilhelm Braumüller, 1900
Length: 227 pages
