New Kůnstliches Fechtbuch ("New Illustrated Fencing Manual") is a German fencing manual written by Jakob Sutor von Baden and printed in 1612. This treatise appears to be a condensed, restructured version of the sword, dussack, side sword, and staff teachings from Joachim Meÿer's 1570 treatise Gründtliche Beschreibung der Kunst des Fechtens, with the side sword material further expanded based on Michael Hundt's 1611 treatise Ein new Kůnstliches Fechtbuch im Rappier.

Publication History

Sutor's New Kůnstliches Fechtbuch was printed in Frankfurt am Main by Wilhelm Hoffman in 1612, using woodblock illustrations by an unknown artist. No additional printings are known until Johann Scheible's 1849 publication in Stuttgart, Germany.

There are a few bibliographical references to an earlier edition, possibly printed in Sutor's home of Baden, Germany and illustrated with copper-plates by Jacob de Gheyn II,[citation needed] but no copies of this edition are currently known. Given the extensive use of Hundt's rapier teachings, it could not have been printed before 1611 (unless there is also a missing earlier edition of Hundt's treatise).
