Levi, Giorgio Enrico & Jacopo Gelli.  
Bibliografia del Duello [Bibliography of the Duel].

Publisher: Milano, Hoepli, 1903; reprint Martino 2002.
8vo, iii-lii, 571 p.; 23 cm. Besterman 1723. Swordfighting as a sport has existed since ancient Egypt and has been practised in many forms in various cultures. Although jousting and tournament combat were popular in the European Middle Ages, modern (FIE) fencing owes more to unarmoured dueling forms that evolved from 16th-century rapier combat. By the mid-19th century emphasis had shifted to use of the dueling sword or epée de terrain, an unedged variant of the smallsword, and is the basis for modern epée fencing. The principal schools in the discipline are Italian, Spanish and French. This work contains 5000 citations to printed sources. Stock# 42490x. Fine, new from the publisher. binder's cloth;
