Actually, this pdf is the second edition (1880) of Sieverbrück's (Siverbrik) book. It contains 10 drawings and a portrait of Ivan Jefimovich Siverbrik, together with his biography. This edition was published by Albert Blendzhini (Альберт Бленджини), fencing professor at the Imperial Fencing School for Guards Officers, St. Petersburg. The text was compiled by Ivan Siverbrik's son, Jegor (1802-1872) in 1856, and published after his death.

Starting from Chapter 3 (Fencing Lessons) pages are bilingual, Russian and French.
