TIBOR/PATRI/FENCE WEENIES/U of DELAWARE-Thibault

I have found a reference to a facsimile of Thibault, from Amsterdam, but
my attempts to obtain it have been forestalled.  There is a copy at the
UNiversity of Delaware, BUT THEY WON'T MAKE COPIES FOR ME, and I have been
unsuccessful trying to obtain it internationally (frankly the search
service don't know how to handle it-a French book, published in the
Netherlands).

Perhaps Patri, with his connections, can succeed where I've failed, or
someone is closer to univ. of Delaware, or someone has a better search
service.

For general consumption-Thibault is a work on Spanish fencing, ca 1626,
which is a double folio which has prints, comparable to de Gheyn's work on
military exercises in there artistic execution.  This is a significant
work in the history of fencing AND any form of recreation of late 16th
century, early 17th century military/court life in Europe.

The book in question is:
