From the other forum, an English psalter. What lovely shading, to show which leg goes in front (right leg in front in custodia prima)

Its been a few years since I've looked into early sword and buckler, but has anybody since put forth a good explanation for the position of the feet?

Is that Queen Mary's Psalter perhaps? If so, then yes I've seen them before but not in such good resolution. very nice - also worthy of note that their stances are, to my eyes, more like those in Italian sources than in German sources, with the bucklers held out extended.

Yeah your right, I thinks I saw it in a book, I just forgot the title of it.

Here is another, from Beinicke MS. 229 folio 357v at Yale. It is a French Arthurian romance from the last quarter of the 13th century. This looks very much like I.33 except for the custodia and the lavish use of gold and colour!
