The MS Thott.290.2º is a German fencing manual composed by Hans Talhoffer in 1459;[1] it was scribed by Michel Rotwyler and illustrated by Clauss Pflieger. The original currently rests in the holdings of Det Kongelige Bibliotek in Copenhagen, Denmark. This manuscript was likely a reference book created for Talhoffer's personal use.[2] Aside from his own teachings, this manuscript also includes Johannes Liechtenauer's Zettel ("Record") and Konrad Kyeser's Bellifortis ("Battle Force"). On the final ten folia, the text is inverted and opening the book from the back reveals a brief treatise on a variety of mystical subjects by Jud Ebreesch.
