I love Mair, I swear i would be all over this if not for my Meyer madness, the images are so beautiful i want to put them up all over my house but the wife won't let me
Yes! I also find it so sad to think that at one time Mair had compiled an enormous library of KDF sources in an attempt to protect them and ensure that his beloved tradition of Western Martial Arts did not die out, only to have them sold off at an auction after his execution to recoup some of the lost funds he had embezzled from the Augsburg treasury.
I truly hope this recent release of the Dresden scans will generate lots of interest and excitement in the HEMA community. I personally think that PHM has been ignored by many practitioners for far too long. Hopefully he will receive more attention and respect because of this.
