In The Flower of Battle, the 14th century knight Fiore dei Liberi sets down his system of martial arts, describing the use of the dagger, rondel, longsword, lance and pollaxe, as well as techniques for unarmed and equestrian combat. Instructions appear in Italian, illustrated by naturalistic figures clad in scholar’s garters and master’s crowns. The third-oldest and most extensive combat manual of the Medieval period, only four copies of the manuscript are extant, this leaf having been reproduced from the Getty version.
