“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 printing of Bacon’s “Augmentis Scientiarum”. This work was written mostly to help classify philosophy and the sciences. Bacon also developed his theories on the relationship between science and theology. Originally printed in 1605, this fine Leiden reissue is a highly desirable printing, with an full-page, added engraved title. While the title page does not mention Elzevier, ‘Adriani Wijngaerden, 1652’ was associated with the Elzevier house, in other titles as well. (Willems 1672). This is the first edition printed with this publishing name. According to Willems,

“A well printed volume that joins Bacon and Elzevier and of which there are two previous editions [first printed in 1645]. Also, attractive copies” (Willems 1695).
