I am interested in becoming more familiar with Silver's work.

Which book in the market best details Silver's system.

Any and all feedback is appreciated.

Free George Silver's Paradoxes of Defence: http://wiktenauer.com/wiki/George_Silver

I own:
Master Of Defence: The Works of George Silver by Paul Wagner ISBN-10: 1581604246
&
English Swordsmanship: The True Fight of George Silver by Stephen Hand ISBN-10: 1891448277


English Swordsmanship contains an interpretation (practical application) and I like it, while Master Of Defence has both Paradoxes & Brief Instructions plus supporting material.

Also worth finding Three Elizabethan Fencing Manuals, you get Giacomo di Grassi His True Arte of Defense, Vincentio Saviolo His Practice, and both of Silvers works.
