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

― Francis Bacon

 

Francis Bacon, 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.

 

This book ‘Sylva Sylvarum’ with ‘Novus Atlas’ is a famous set of philosophical treatises covering topics such as medical treatments for prolonged life and preservation of youth by using opium! Bacon wrote this book as a collection of miscellaneous topics – others include ancient wisdom and secrets.

 

This Latin translation was edited by Jacob Gruter and includes a preface by William Rawley. Rawley, Bacon’s secretary, decided to add the unfinished but fascinating ‘New Atlantis’ to the end of this printing of ‘Sylva’. In 1648, both Elzevier and Hackiana published examples of this work; however, Hackiana decided to re-engrave the illustrated title page.
