Please note that only the first edition (1516) of this text has a complete set of illustrations, but we currently do not have permission to publish them. This article is illustrated using the remaining three illustrated texts, but following the order laid out in the original. The only exception to this is [[:File:Paurñfeyndt 25.jpg|the image on page H2v]] of the 1516, which is replaced by the three images used in Egenolff's version. Furthermore, while the Twelve Rules for the Beginning Fencer are unillustrated in Paurñfeyndt's work, this presentation includes the illustrations for six of the twelve found in the [[Liber Quodlibetarius (MS B.200)|MS B.200]].

Andre Paurñfeyndt (Paurñfeindt, Paurenfeindt) was a 16th century German Freifechter. He seems to have been a resident of Vienna, although he mentions in his introduction that he served as a bodyguard to Cardinal Matthäus Lang von Wellenburg (1468 - 1540).[1] In 1516, he wrote and published a fencing manual entitled Ergrundung Ritterlicher Kunst der Fechterey ("Founding of the Chivalric Art of Swordplay"), which Sydney Anglo notes may have been the first illustrated work of its kind.[2] Little else is known about the life of this master, but he describes himself as a Freifechter and the contents of his book make it clear that he was associated with the tradition of Johannes Liechtenauer. His treatise diverges significantly from the standard teachings of the Liechtenauer tradition, but this may be due to his stated purpose of writing for beginning fencers.

Treatise

Please note that only the first edition (1516) of this text has a complete set of illustrations, but we currently do not have permission to publish them. This article is illustrated using the remaining three illustrated texts, but following the order laid out in the original. The only exception to this is the image on page H2v of the 1516, which is replaced by the three images used in Egenolff's version. Furthermore, while the Twelve Rules for the Beginning Fencer are unillustrated in Paurñfeyndt's work, this presentation includes the illustrations for six of the twelve found in the MS B.200.
