Anfangsgründe der Fechtkunst ("Rudiments of Fencing"; MS B.215) is a two-volume German manuscript created by Salomon Christoph Müller in the mid 18th century. The original currently rests in the holdings of the Universitätsbibliothek Erlangen-Nürnberg in Erlangen, Germany. Müller served as court fencing master to the Margrave of Brandenburg, and despite the title, Müller's treatise on smallsword is quite thorough, including an extensive discussion of fencing with the left hand.
