Johann Wolfgang von Goethe; Poetry and Truth

Post by Kevin Maurer » Sun May 02, 2010 1:57 pm

The following Link is for a goggel book, originally in German, but translated to English, it was published in 1849, and while it is too late for the early fechtschulen period, starting on page 126, it gives a most fascinating account of a later Fechtschulen fight, between the two masters of von Goethe's town.
this whole book is an informative read. Enjoy

ps Roger, if this needs to be moved somewhere, dont hesitate.

Is it possible to read it online? I can't seem to read it through the link you provided. Might be missing something, though. :)
