Even based on very preliminary browsing it contains a lot of interesting tidbits of information about the transitional period when the Italian sabre fencing completed its triumphant 10-year-long march across the Austro-Hungarian Empire, and almost completely eradicated previous sabre fencing schools (old Hungarian, KuK Hoch-Terz etc), but the sabre was still used in duels.

Fortunately one could easily copy text from the pdf and translate it with Google.
