The Smallsword in England (by J.D. Aylward) 1st Edition

Good condition.

asking price = $120 (includes shipping)

I can accept PayPal, check or money order.

I purchased this book through Abebooks a year ago. Upon its arrival I found an inscription written for its previous owner which reads,

Au Professeur Leon Paul.

homage le l'Auteur

e 10 mai. 1948

Being a fencer, I recognized the name Leon Paul. (http://www.leonpaul.com/) So I sent an email to to company.

From: "Leon Paul" <sales@leonpaul.com>
