Sloane MS No.5229 contains a brief series of German fencing illustrations created in 1512 by Albrecht Dürer.[1] The original currently rests in the holdings of the British Library in London, United Kingdom. These illustrations, like all of Dürer's fencing material, appear to be connected with the visit of Emperor Maximilian I to Dürer's home city of Nuremberg in 1512.[1] Unlike the MS 26-232 these devices do not seem to be copied from another fencing manual, though they appear to be related to the tradition of Johannes Lecküchner.
