Compendio y Philosophia y Destreza de las Armas ("Compendium of the Philosophy and Skill at Arms", MS R4-B274) is a 20th century tracing of a Spanish fencing manual written by Octavio Ferrara in 1625.[1] It currently rests in the Corble Collection of the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven in Leuven, Belgium. The modern copy bears the title "Copy M.S.S. Early Spanish Fencing. 1625."[2] Corble replicated all of the illustrations from Ferrara's work, but omitted most of the text.
