The MS Dresden C.15 is a German manuscript created by Heinrich von Gunterrodt in ca. 1579.[1] The original currently rests in the holdings of the Sächsische Landesbibliothek in Dresden, Germany. This manuscript treats grappling, dagger, Messer, rapier (both single and with secondary weapons), spear, and dagger. Given their significantly different contents, it is unclear if this manuscript has any relationship to Gunterrodt's historical treatise De Veris Principiis Artis Dimicatorie ("On the True Principles of the Art of Fencing"), published the same year.
