Fantastic! The images are lovely. The smallsword/spadroon looks very French, not surprising I guess!
I find it very interesting that it has different sections for straight pallasch and curved sabre, with different engaging guards. The engage with the sabres looks like some of the Hungarian sabre material doesn't it? Interesting to see slipping the right leg back during parries (if that is what is shown.. or maybe it is traversing?). I love the arrows showing the path of the blade - love the image on p143 with a cut to the inside sword arm.
The staff section is great as well!

I like swords more than you.

I note that in sabre (straight), all cuts seem to be delivered as moulinets (as in the Manuel de Gymnastique f 1875)
