Originally an examination of the sport "as practiced by all European nations from the Middle Ages to the present day," with 1896 being the "present day," this bibliography today serves as an exemplary historical reference.In addition to the informative bibliography, the "Notes on Fencing and Duelling" section fascinates readers with its accounts of duels as reported in various publications of the time. One story from the September 21, 1890, edition of the Sunday Times startlingly reveals, "After a French duel, if 'honor has been satisfied,' and nobody has been assassinated, a grand breakfast usually takes place."
