Fencing Diagram

Portuguese Diagram

My last post showing a French fencing diagram generated several views from throughout Europe.  As a result, I thought this similar image may be of interest.  It may be Portuguese in origin, or perhaps Spanish or Galician.  The source that published this to the web did so without explanation or citation. Similar to the prior post, it appears to be from an illustrated dictionary for an entry on esgrima and also appears to be from circa 1915, but those are speculations. Any corrections or insight would be welcomed.

    Great find! It is without doubt Portuguese in origin, speaking as a Portuguese-American.
