“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.

 

An extremely rare 1648 printing of ‘The Remains’ of Francis Bacon. This book of Bacon’s works includes essays, letters, responses to treaties, prayers, and confessions, of particular note are Bacon’s letters to Queen Elizabeth and Edward Cooke. Originally published in 1642, this edition included style changes as well as minor material additions. There is some discrepancy in the first article, “An Essay of a King”. While it is a word for word exact copy of the 1642 edition, the authorship of this essay is not thought to be Bacon. (Montague, 3I).
