|Place of origin||Netherlands (?)|
Fechter & Ringer ("Fencers and Wrestlers") is a series of prints based on sketches by Dutch artist Maarten van Heemskerck and printed in 1552. The only copy currently known was bound into the Codex I.6.2º.5 by Paulus Hector Mair and rests in the holdings of the Universitätsbibliothek Augsburg in Augsburg, Germany. The title was also appended by Mair, and it is unclear if the prints originally bore a different title. Reinier van Noort has observed that each section appears to carry a coherent sequence, with an initial device and several counters.
The prints known collectively as Fechter & Ringer were printed by Dutch printer Dirck Coornhert in 1552.
