Anonymous, Fecht und Ringerbüch, c1508

Anonymous. 1508. Germany. Manuscript E.1939.65.341. Glasgow Museums, Scotland

The fechtbüch resident at the Glasgow Museums, is comprised of written text and images numbering 184 plates. There are two sections with illustrations, the first section focused on longsword partially illustrated in colour, whereby each individual illustrated is depicted wearing a different garment and colours. The quality of the illustrations in this section appears less anatomically accurate as compared to the second section of illustrations focused on grappling. The illustrations depicting grappling/wrestling techniques only employ shades of yellow and red and may have been illustrated by a completely different artist from the first section, where the individuals depicted are more anatomically accurate.
