Academie de l'Espée ("Academy of the Sword") is a Dutch fencing manual written by Gérard Thibault d'Anvers and initially printed in 1630. Arguably the most elaborate fencing manual ever written, it was the work of several years and its lavish illustrations were prepared by a team of sixteen master engravers. Thibault's work treats the use of the rapier after the Spanish style La Verdadera Destreza ("the True Skill") and is well-known for its use of intricate geometrical figures (especially the cercle mysterieux, or "mysterious circle").

Publication History

The title page of Academie de l'Espée indicates that it was completed in 1628, but it wasn't printed until 1630 (a year after Thibault's death) in Leiden, Netherlands. A second edition was printed forty years later in Brussels, Belgium in 1668.
