Traitté de la cavallerie du cavalier Melze. [drophead title].
[France, early seventeenth century]. - A very early French abridgement of Melzo's infuential military cavalry treatise: Regoli militari sopra il governo e servitio della cavalleria (Antwerp, 1611). Though also published in French at an early date (1615) as Des règles militaires du chevalier Melzo this manuscript is not a copy of either version but probably a version compiled by a French student of the military arts. It follows the arrangement of the printed texts, with its five books and numerous sub-headings, but without the illustrations found in both Italian and French printed volumes. The five books cover: I. The composition of a cavalry regiment; II. Accompanying other regiments and companies; III. Orders; IV. Combat; V. Generalities. Manuscript, small folio (298 × 190 mm), 35 leaves, most written recto and verso in a neat French scribal hand with calligraphic headings, within red ruled borders. Old waterstain affecting upper forecorners throughout. Preserved in recent wrappers to style. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
