Arte Gladitoria Dimicandi : 15th Century Wordsmanship of Master Filipo Vadi.
. Fillipo Vadi was Master-at-Arms under Guidobaldo da Montefeltro, Duke of Urbino, to whom this work was dedicated in the 1480s. The first part of his work follows dei Liberi, but the second part contains his 'higher principles' of swordplay, a critically important addition to the early Italian tradition. First-ever translation into English. For the first time, a colour fascimile and translation will be available from this important 15th century master of late Italian Medieval swordsmanship. Master Fillipo Vadi's work, previously overlooked and underestimated by fencing scholars, presents the student of historical swordsmanship or of miltiary history a fresh, stunningly beautiful look into the mind of an Italian fencing master.Accompanying the exquisitely wrought text, finely translated by Luca Porzio, are 56 colour plates showing many of the techniques explained in the chapters and by other historical masters, but in this case, with such a beautiful rendering that they are works of art unto themselves.An absolute must for the bookshelf of anyone interested in the history of fencing or late medieval warfare, this rich volume will also appeal to collectors of illuminated manuscripts, reeactors, and literary traditions of 15th century Italy. Chivalry Bookshelf, 2002, v,204pp. Hardback, small folio with fine colour plates, d/j. (ISBN: 1891448161) .

This may possibly have have been the occasion for the Naples publisher to issue the romance "Corinne", which was first published in Italian in Firenze, in 1808.
