Nobilissimo discorso intorno il schermo ("Most Noble Discourse on Defense", MS Italien 1527), is an Italian fencing manual written in the 1580s by Girolamo Cavalcabo. It currently rests in the holdings of the Bibliothèque Nationale de France in Paris, France. Cavalcabo's treatise discusses the rapier, both single and with various secondary weapons, and is consistent with the Bolognese fencing tradition. Though it doesn't seem to have ever been published in Italian, the treatise was translated and published in Middle French in 1597 and Early New High German in 1611.
