Fiore arrived!

My copy of Tom Leoni's new translation of Fior di Battaglia has arrived. It has already produced one new insight: not only Posta Breve of the sword in two hands but also the four guards of abrazare are described as having no stability. (Mr Leoni translates the expressions differently, but I have such a problem with reading translated works in general that I'm reading the original, Malipiero's transcription and Leoni's translation at the same time.)
