Angelo’s Plates for Escrime in the Encyclopédie, 1765

Diderot & d’Alembert selected and published Domenico Angelo’s L’Ecole des Armes as the definitive, authoritative text on fencing, published as Escrime in the Encyclopédie, ou dictionnaire raisonné des sciences, des arts et des métiers. 1765.

Note: scans need to be re-worked and not sharpened; perhaps just brightened and contrast increased.
