    Help with Colichemarde Fencing

    Like many people who watched Deadliest Warrior and follow Cold Steel, I am intrigued by smallsword type known as the colichemarde.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colichemarde

    As it is a type of smallsword, I assume the same or similar principles dictate its use as do a smallsword. The Wikipedia article suggests that it was
    1. Popular during 1680-1720
    2. Popular among royal European courts
    3. Popular among officers of the French and Indian War Period

    So, what I'm interested in is compiling all works written on smallsword and rapier fencing / fighting that would have been available to these groups of people during this time period.

    Can anyone provide a list of recommendations?
