Years ago, the caption beneath Nadi's (On Fencing, Laureate., 1994) photograph in the Encyclopedia Britannica read "Aldo Nadi, one of the greatest fencers of all time." However, Nadi is not even mentioned in recent editions of the Britannica, which makes it odd that this book is the first edition of a previously unpublished autobiographical manuscript written by a man who died in 1965. In a literate, well-read, elegant, haughty, and vain voice, Nadi describes a stylish time that is now long gone. The author's life was one of fencing, womanizing, traveling, gambling, and dueling. He crossed paths with the beautiful people of 1920s and 1930s Europe and fancied himself a great artiste and lover. His autobiography offers a fascinating personal glimpse of a certain time and place, but it is questionable how many readers will be interested. For comprehensive sports collections only.?John M.
