“Some books should be tasted, some devoured, but only a few should be chewed and digested thoroughly.”

― Francis Bacon

 

Francis Bacon was one of the most famous English philosophers and scientists of the Renaissance. While most of his work deals with discovery, scientific method, and the scientific revolution, he did lean strongly toward Puritanism in his personal devotion.

 

An extremely rare folio printing of “Resuscitatio” by Francis Bacon. This edition is a reissue of the 1657 edition, but it is very close in content and enlarged. This book includes the works of Bacon including his most famous and popular letters and essays, such as his letters to Queen Elizabeth. This third edition was, according to the title page, from ‘the best corrected copies’. A fantastic work!
