Luigi Barbasetti, (born February 1859, Cividale del Friuli, Italy-died March 31, 1948, Verona), Italian fencing master, much respected in both Italy and Hungary. A student of the great Italian sabre teacher Giuseppe Radaelli, Barbasetti in many ways outstripped his master. His unique insight into fencing helped guide the sport into the 20th century. Barbasetti began his teaching career at the Military Fencing Masters School of Rome and later moved to Vienna, where he opened the Austro-Hungarian Central Fencing School in 1894.

IN his preface Signor Barbasetti is at pains to point out that after teaching at the Italian Fencing Masters' School in Home and the Austro-Hungarian Central Fencing School in Vienna he was a private instructor in Paris. He implies that personal observation and experience in countries with different psychological backgrounds have enabled him to expound an unbiased theory of his art.

In 1932, Italian fencing maestro Luigi Barbasetti wrote his now famous The Art of the Foil (recently reprinted by Barnes & Noble). While this work by a respected classical fencing expert (who lived in an age where occasionally still lethal dueling was not all that infrequent) has been largely influential to modern sport fencers, it is interesting to today's historical swordsmanship students for other reasons entirely. Barbasetti includes an entire section on historical swordsmanship at the end of his excellent instructions on foil.

I've owned an original 1932 copy of this book for over 40 years.The 1932 edition is a translation of the original 1898 Italian. There's also a 1898 German edition. I bought this modern reprint to give to a friend. I own a very large library of fencing books, and find this book still illuminating. I'm a fencing coach who follows the modern game of fencing assiduously. This remarkable book is still useful in-spite of changes in styles, rules, and equipment. Certain technical details are clearly obsolete today. The book's examples all use the now obsolete Italian foil and the associated "long" on guard position. That's the negative. However the author's discussion of basic technique and a very sophisticated discussion of attack and defense is even more useful in today's very fast electrically scored game. Highly recommended for beginners, experienced fencers, and coaches. the book deserves a place in any well rounded fencing library.

Great for fencing lovers

Excellent book on fencing

I ordered this book because the great late Bruce Lee had a copy of it in
his personal library. He was a huge fan of fencing and in fact, based his
personal martial art expression, Jeet Kune Do on many fencing principles and
techniques. He was so influenced by fencing that he named his art after the
fencing terms, "interception or stop hit".

Although I have no formal fencing training I found this book interesting and
informative. Keep in mind that the original printing of this book was 1932.

I feel that this book would be better suited for someone with fencing training
or perhaps to an individual who is interested in the strategy and history of
fencing. This is not a how to book.
