Camillo Agrippa. "Trattato di Scienza d'Arme", 1553

Camillo Agrippa was a noted fencer, architect, engineer and mathematician of the Renaissance. He is considered to be one of the greatest fencing theorists of all time. He is most renowned for applying geometric theory to solve problems in armed combat who also simplified Marozzo's eleven guards to four. He was regarded as the man who defined rapier as a thrusting weapon as well as one to be used for cutting. He published his book "Trattato di Scienza d'Arme. Et un dialogo in detta materia." in 1553, later re-published in 1604.
