Author: Joachim Köppen (Koppe, Koeppen, Koppen)
Description: Koppen was a Phil. and Med. Doctor in Magdeburg who wrote this treatise after having been taught to fence at the University of Wittenberg by a certain Heinrich Beler(n) von Bautzen. His treatise was first published in 1619, and this copy in 1625. Finally a late copy was printed in 1880. His treatise is also inspired by Italian fencing master Salvator Fabris.
Furthermore, there are notes from 1630-35 about a Fähnrich and Capitain Joachim Köppen in Swedish service fighting against the Catholics. If this is the same person is at this stage still unclear.
