Those of you who attended the Kalamazoo Conference no doubt were drooling over the leaflet in the registration packet advertising the facsimiles of Royal Armories MS I.33 fight book. They are producing only 750 copies of this, in three different levels of fineness. Even the basic version “the Sponsors’ Version” will cost £600 and be gorgeous — the “Exemplary Edition” will only be made in 26 boxed editions, “bound in a cover of folded veined vellum over quarter sawn oak boards, … hand-tooled in gold and blind embossed with a fourteenth-century design and with a figure taken from the manuscript.” And yours for only £1500!
This is going to be a gorgeous facsimile and for those DRM members interested in fight manuals, it will be a “must” to have, even if realistically it is beyond most of our budgets.
The sponsors’ list will close on December 1st and with it the last opportunity
to buy the book at the sponsors discount!
For those who are interested, or who would like to share news of this (with libraries, for example?), here is a PDF of the flyer:
