Gracias Jaime

Thanks much for sharing this!
Buenos Aires must have been an interesting place for fencing in the late 19th century.

Title Los secretos de la espada : exposicion y comentario de las doctrinas del Barón de Bazancourt sobre la esgrima por Luís Ricardo Fors ; ilustraciones de De Neuville, Fortuny, Gamarra, Genilloud, Jazet ; y fotograbados por F. Ortega
Author Fors, Luis Ricardo (n. 1843) De Neuville- Ortega, F.-
Date 1894 Edition [S.l.] [s.n.] Buenos Aires Imp., Litogr. y Encuadernación de Jacobo Peuser

Now I wonder, is this more or less just a translation of Bazancourt, or is there much additional commentary?

In case anyone else curious, here's the original French Les secrets de l'épée (1862): https://archive.org/details/lessecretsdelpe01bazagoog

And, a 1900 English translation:

Also, Bazancourt inspired Richard Burton's "The Sentiment of the Sword"
