Künnst zu fechten vonn dem Lienhartt Sollinger ("The Art of Fencing by Lienhartt Sollinger", Codex Guelf 38.21 August 2º) is a German fencing manual created in ca. 1588, possibly by Lienhart Sollinger. The original currently rests in the holdings of the Herzog August Bibliothek in Wolfenbüttel, Germany. This manuscript has two main parts. The bulk of the text (ff 1r - 114v) is an anthology of fencing treatises by masters including Sollinger and Jörg Wilhalm Hutter. The remaining 35 folia contain a family history of the Fuggers, possibly the rough draft for a more elaborate and polished work.
