This transcription presents various portions from the second volume of Paulus Hector Mair’s compilation of the art of fencing. It is based on the German language edition which is kept at the SLUB in Dresden under the access number Mscr.Dresd.C.94.
Since the resolution of the scans of the manuscript that were used for this transcription was rather poor the potential punctuation was not always clearly discernible. "U" and "Ü" are very seldom differentiated by diacritical symbols, thus the transcription makes use of either "u" or "ü" in accordance to the modern way of speaking. The same goes for the letter "y" with a dieresis which was transcribed as "ü" wherever it made sense. Likewise the letter "v" became a "u" when modern use suggested its usage in a vocalic way.
