Translation - Istruzione per maneggio e scherma della sciabola del Capitano Settimo Del Frate

In the link below you will find my complete translation for Settimo Del Frate's 1868 book Istruzione per maneggio e scherma della sciabola ('Instruction for handling and fencing with the sabre'), the first treatise published on Radaelli's sabre method. As Del Frate states in the treatise, the book was written on the request of his regiment's commander, Colonel Gerolamo Avogadro di Collobiano, who had been implementing Radaelli's cavalry sabre method in his regiment, the Monferrato light cavalry.
