Text in German and Danish. A magnificent edition of Johannes Bengedans' handbook from ca 1450 on the techniques of war. It deals with canons and gunpowder, as well as war against castle and fortress and an attacking army. It is illustrated with splendid drawings by the author himself. He was a German craftsman/engineer who was employed by the Master of the Teutonic Knights and by King Christopher of Bavaria and Denmark. The text is translated into Danish and modern German, and language, chemistry, measurements and weights, the weapons of war and the historic connection are thoroughly explained. The book will therefore appeal to a broad public.
