I though folks might find this interesting.....i stumbled across it while researching a different Forum-inspired topic in my university library system. It's like a PBS children's special on rapier vs. sword in renaissance England. Some interesting stuff in there with regards to how the discussion/debate was being conducted by swordsmen and regarded by scholars circa 1615. Enjoy!

Here is a link to the full document: http://eebo.chadwyck.com/search/full_rec?SOUR...;ID=V20988

Its only 8 pages, but i've compiled it into a single PDF document. PM me and i'd be happy to send it along.

Here is the catalog extract:
