Traite des armes ("Treatise on Weapons", MS X.911) is a Spanish fencing manual created by Pedro de Heredia in the early 1600s. The original currently rests in the holdings of the Kungliga biblioteket in Stockholm, Sweden. Heredia's work is written in French and seems to describe a style combining elements of the Iberian esgrima antigua and the Bolognese fencing of Girolamo Cavalcabo. This is one of three manuscripts of Heredia's work, the other two being the MS E.1939.65.359 and the MS E.1939.65.360.
