Description

Fiore dei Liberi was a weapons-master from Italy who was active in the 14th and early 15th century. After fifty years of training Italy's elite, he put his art to paper and created the Flower of Battle. The Flower of Battle covers unarmed combat, the use of the dagger, sword, spear, axe as well as fighting in armor, without and on horseback as well as other odds and ends. MS Latin 11269 is a copy of the Flower of Battle in full color with Latin prose. The Latin has been translated by Benjamin Winnick and an interpretation provided by Richard Marsden in which brief explanations are provided as well as comparisons to the other copies of the Flower of Battle. The art has been restored by Henry Snider.
