La Scientia della Spada ("The Science of the Sword", MS KB.73.J.38) is a 17th century Italian fencing manual written some time before 1609.[citation needed] It resides in the holdings of the Koninklijke Bibliotheek in The Hague, Netherlands. It seems to be either an early draft or an abridged copy of Salvator Fabris' 1606 treatise Lo Schermo, overo Scienza d’Arme ("On Fencing, or the Science of Arms").
