Codex Amberger is a German fencing manual probably created in the mid 1500s.[1]. The original currently rests in the private collection of the J. Christoph Amberger in Towson, MD (USA). The manuscript is a fragment, containing only nine plays of wrestling, three of messer, and one each of dagger, long sword, and staff. It has no consistent foliation, and was probably originally part a larger work.[2] Based on the images released thus far, the manuscript seems to be largely a copy of Christian Egenolff's 1530s fencing anthology Der Altenn Fechter anfengliche kunst. A few of the images may instead be related to the manuscripts of Paulus Hector Mair.
