1665 Francis Bacon New Atlantis Novum Organum Scientiarum SCIENCE FOLIO WORKS

“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.

A rare folio printing of the complete works of Francis Bacon. This 1665 printing includes ‘New Atlantis’, ‘Novum Organum’, ‘Augmentis Scientiarum’, ‘History of Henry VII’, and more! This beautiful vellum-bound tome includes a beautiful full-page portrait frontispiece of Bacon and printed in a two-column format. From the British Museum Catalogue,

“printed for the most part from the same setting-up of types as [an earlier edition], but with some errors corrected and the headlines and a few pages reprinted.”

Item number: #1063

Price: $1250
