De Nassavsche Wapen-Handelinge van Schilt, Spies, Rappier end Targe ("On the Weapon-Handling of Nassau with Shield, Spear, Rapier, and Target") is a Dutch drill manual illustrated by Adam van Breen and printed in 1618. The authorship of the text is unknown.

Publication History

De Nassavsche Wapen-Handelinge van Schilt, Spies, Rappier end Targe was first published in 1618 in the Hague, Netherlands. Noted artist Adam van Breen provided the artwork, but the author of the text is unknown, as is the original language of the treatise—editions in Dutch, French, and German all survive from that year.

An English edition was produced in 1625 under the title Mars his Feild or The Exercise of Armes, printed in London by Roger Daniell. This was an anonymous, abridged translation and contained no introduction; unlike the prior editions, it appears to have been hand-written onto the illustrated pages.

Contents

Because an English translation has not yet been produced from one of the original languages, the text of 1625 English publication has been placed in the first transcription column. (Unfortunately, the Bodleian Library's copy, from which this transcription was made, is missing several pages.)
