Traité ou instruction pour tirer des armes ("Treatise or Instruction on Fighting with Weapons") is an Italian fencing manual written by Girolamo Cavalcabo and printed in 1597. It treats the use of the rapier and is consistent with the Bolognese fencing tradition; the work also includes a brief treatise by an unknown master referred to only as Paternostraro of Rome. Though Cavalcabo's manuscript of the treatise is written in Italian, it appears to only ever have been published in Middle French and Early New High German translations.

Publication History

Cavalcabo's original manuscript, titled Nobilissimo discorso intorno il schermo ("Most Noble Discourse on Defense"), was translated into French by Jacques de Villamont and first published in Paris, France, in 1595. It seems to have seen lasting populatiry, as it was reprinted in Rouen, France, in 1597 and included in the anthology Le guidon des capitaines ("The Standard of Captains") in 1609. Further editions were published in 1610, 1617, and 1628.

In 1611, it was translated into German and published by Conrad von Einsidell in Leipzig, Germany; a second German edition was published in 1612 in Jena.
