The Corporation of the Master in Deeds of Arms of Paris was founded under the auspices of Charles IX in 1567 and, for the next 225 years, it regulated the conduct and teaching of fencing in Paris until its demise in the French Revolution. The Corporation included many of the most celebrated names of the French fencing world such as Pomp?e, Cavalcabo, Saint-Ange, de la Touche, le Perche, Liancour, De Brye, Danet, Bo?ssi?re, and many others. Henri Daressy, whose father and grandfather were also famous fencing teachers, collected the Corporation's scattered documents over a thirty-year period. His Les Archives des Ma?tres d'Armes de Paris (1888) presents these documents which outline the changing the rules and regulations of the Corporation and detail some of its legal battles with unlicensed fencing teachers. He includes a number of brief portraits of famous members of the organisation.
