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

― Francis Bacon

 

A rare collection of important works of Francis Bacon bound together as one!

 

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. Other works in this volume include ‘New Atlantis’ and ‘Natural History’ which helped lay the foundation for many philosophical methodologies that would be important through the 18th– and 19th-centuries.

 

This 1651 edition features an illustrated title page and separate pagination for each of the three named works.
