Il Fior di Battaglia was written in the early 1400s by the legendary master Fiore dei Liberi. The book covers combat on foot, on horseback, in armour, out of armour, unarmed, and armed with dagger, sword, spear and pollax. It is the most complete and systematic source for knightly combat ever written. It exists in four manuscript copies, in four libraries: the Bibliothèque nationale Francaise, Paris; the Pierpont Morgan library, New York; the Pisani-Dossi library, and the Getty Museum, Los Angeles.
Our facsimile uses the super-high-resolution images provided by the Getty museum, and is printed in full colour on high-quality paper. It is a must-have for any scholar of Fiore’s art, HEMA practitioner, and art historians of the trecento and quattrocento.
