Compendio y Philosophia y Destreza de las Armas ("Compendium of the Philosophy and Skill at Arms", MS R4-B274) is a 20th century tracing of a Spanish fencing manual written by Octavio Ferrara in 1625. It currently rests in the Corble Collection of the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven in Leuven, Belgium. The modern copy bears the title "Copy M.S.S. Early Spanish Fencing. 1625." Corble replicated all of the illustrations from Ferrara's work, but omitted most of the text.
