The MS Dresden C 487 is a German fencing manual created in the early 1500s.[1] The original currently rests in the holdings of the Sächsische Landesbibliothek in Dresden, Germany. This manuscript is commonly attributed to Sigmund Schining ein Ringeck, but although his gloss of Johannes Liechtenauer's Record forms the core of the book, he is referred to in the third person in its introduction and was most likely not responsible for the manuscript itself. The rest of the manuscript is an anthology of treatises on a variety of martial topics, by several different masters who stood in the tradition of Johannes Liechtenauer.

Until recently, this manuscript was presumed to date to first half of the 15th century due to the names mentioned within (not only Ringeck but also Duke Albrecht of Bavaria) and the style of the script.[2] ‎While the original text of Ringeck's gloss may still date to that time period, more recent watermark analysis places this manuscript much later, dating the paper to the early 16th century and potentially even narrowing it down to between 1504 and 1519.[3]

  5. Or I think its more likely that the word treten here is intended to convey kicking.
  6. This is a tricky word it could mean illegal breaks, unnatural breaks, or opposing breaks.
  7. I assume this means either armoured or armed.
