The Starhemberg Fechtbuch (Cod. 44.A.8; sometimes called Peter von Danzig's Fechtbuch) is a German fencing manual created in 1452.[1] The original currently rests in the holdings of the Biblioteca dell’Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei e Corsiniana in Rome, Italy. This manuscript is sometimes attributed to Peter von Danzig zum Ingolstadt,[2] but in fact the text only cites him as author of the final section. The rest of the manuscript is a compilation text consisting of treatises on a variety of martial topics, by several different masters who stood in the tradition of Johannes Liechtenauer.


The known provenance of the Starhemberg Fechtbuch is:[3]

  • Compiled and written in 1452 by an unknown scribe.
  • 1554 - Owned by Theo Wittigschlager (term of ownership unknown).
  • 1568 - Owned by Sir Erasmus von Starhemberg (term of ownership unknown).
  • 1813 - Donated to the Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei e Corsiniana by D. Antonia Corsini.
