I have translated the 1661 edition of Paschen’s “Short though clear description treating of fencing on the thrust and cut”. This translation, which includes some comparison with the 1666 edition, is now available as a free download here http://www.bruchius.com/docs/Paschen%201661%2...%20RvN.pdf.

However, if you want this very interesting work as a book, or if you want to support me a little for all the work
I have been putting out there, you can buy this book here http://www.lulu.com/shop/reinier-van-noort/fe...7398.html#, which includes the same translation and comparison, but also includes the plates of the 1661 edition (which I already made available for free on my website), and further contains my translation of Henning’s 1658 treatise “Short though thorough Instruction in Cut-fencing” (also already available online).

This will likely be the last translation I am putting out there for free for a while. With my new work situation, and a few larger translation projects in the pipelines, I do not expect I will be able to present much more work like this in the coming time. However, I do expect to be able to present some further, more professional book projects in the coming months!

The bad news is there's no online version of this book. I am so disappointed. Mad

Hello,

Yes there is; the Pascha translation is available here:

The Henning translation is available here:

The plates from Pascha are included in this:

The Lulu is just for people who would like a paper book (as I wanted one for myself).
