The Imperial Age: Fisticuffs & Swordplay $5.00

Mostly a useful survey of the hand-to-hand combat styles taught in the late Victorian period, represented by advanced classes and statistics for implements such as the sword cane and reinforced walking stick, and particularly referring to Sherlock Holmes as the cover suggests. Good treatment of a defensive fighting style (bartitsu) and information on boxing.

I'm not too happy about editing. I was disappointed with the Fencing Master and background information on savate and the 1 1/2 pages spent on fiction pitting Self-Defence Girl against Saucy Jack detracted from the product for me.
