  1. I post here, with more details, something that I posted yesterday in another topic. 5 or 6 years ago, at the beginning of my research in the First Folio, I wondered if the Golden Ratio could have been used to hide an important information. There are 907 pages in the First Folio. 907/1.618 = 560,57 that is between 560 and 561. I smiled discovering the 560th page of the First Folio... I smiled even more discovering the message hidden at the bottom of the page. King F BACON being allow'd to climb (steepe hilles) SONNET 7 LOe in the Orient when the gracious light, Lifts vp his burning head,each vnder eye Doth homage to his new appearing ſight, Seruing with lookes his ſacred maieſty, And hauing climb'd the ſteepe vp heauenly hill, Reſembling ſtrong youth in his middle age, Yet mortall lookes adore his beauty ſtill, Attending on his goulden pilgrimage: But when from high-moſt pich with wery car, Like feeble age he reeleth from the day, The eyes(fore dutious )now conuerted are From his low tract and looke an other way: So thou,thy ſelfe out-going in thy noon: Vnlok'd on dieſt vnleſſe thou get a ſonne. Now, what about the next page (561) ? I discovered that the pages 207 and 208 were the only two pages of the play in which the standard letter E of Eight had been replaced by kind of an inverted 3, hiding 33. You would have probably recognize the number 561 that is a TRIANGULAR number with n = 33 In fact, the page 207 is the 561st page of the First Folio by counting from the blanck page that is before Ben Jonson's Poem (page 2) which means that page 208 is the 561st page by counting from Jonson's Epigram. Thus, the Triangular number 561 (n=33) points to Henry the Eighth. By the way, if we do not take the 18 pages of the preface in count, the 561th page ( from the 1st page of The Tempest) is page 225 of "The Life of King Henry the Eight". It can be linked with the Biography of Rawley, telling us that Francis Bacon was born at York House or York Place. And for me, this is another clue indicating that Francis Bacon was a Prince Tudor, the son of Queen Elizabeth. https://internetshakespeare.uvic.ca/Library/facsimile/book/SLNSW_F1/586/index.html%3Fzoom=1275.html
  2. Hi Rob ! I hope that you are well. This is HYEROGLYPH(IC)A MONAS written in Greek. 😉
  3. Hi Eric, You probably do not remember, but I shared my view on the subject in my video "Francis Bacon's Pleading", one year ago, for Bacon's Anniversary 😉. The part concerning this passage begins at 4:00.
  4. You obviously misspelled HIEROGLYPHICA MONAS and wrote HIEROGLYPHA MONAS instead. Knowing that MONAS HIEROGLYPHICA = 188, MONAS HIEROGLYPHA = 188 - I(9)C(3) = 176 Simple Cipher And you already knew the answer to your question. So, I wonder what is your point ? I would say that you will say (😊) that for you the monad count for one. Thus, 176 + 1 = 177 = WILLIAM SHAKE-SPEARE Am I Right ?
  5. WOW !!! CAB, thank you for having highlighted this passage !🙏❤️ I see at least 4 more hidden references to Bacon's name. I will try to keep in mind that your topic is aimed at the general public. https://internetshakespeare.uvic.ca/Library/facsimile/book/SLNSW_F1/714/index.html%3fzoom=1275.html Firstly, notice that "Heere lye I Timon" lies between "Seek not" and Passe by" As S = 18 and P = 15 then S + P = 33 = BACON B (2) + A (1) + C (3) + O (14) + N (13) = 33 Now, we can draw a square almost centered on the "I" and one message appears. nom (the french word for name) : I am bacon Here is another possibility ... becon / beacon As you quite rightly said two days ago, Beacon is an anagram of Bacone. AND THE LAST BUT NOT THE LEAST 🙂 The motto of BACON'S FAMILY was mediocria firma (The Middle-way is safer). By experience, I learned that it can be rewarding to take a look at the middle of a passage when we wonder if Francis Bacon was involved. F. BACON 😊
  6. Here is a link to a facsimile reproduced from the Dyce copy of "the only known original edition." in 1914 https://archive.org/details/swetnamwomanhate00amerrich/page/n17/mode/2up Did you notice the woman with a spear/ lance and the access to the throne that is restricted by two swords ?
  7. FANTASTIC, Eric ! I love the idea of the two trees and what you've done so far with the "Night" Tree. ❤️ I agree with the idea that the oval portraits work better, but understand your wish to highlight the difference between the two trees. Well done !
  8. It is clear why ! 😊 Great discovery and great explanation. Thank you CAB ! I take this opportunity to share something I dealt with few days ago, following my research on Icarus, Scylla and Charybdis and the Middle Way. My research led me to the 2nd page 171 of the First Folio, in the 3rd part of King Henry the sixth. "What Scene of Death hath Roscius now to Acte" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quintus_Roscius_Gallus https://muse.jhu.edu/article/852869 "Accordingly, he has long since achieved such distinction that anyone who excels in any art is called a ‘Roscius.’” Cicero - De Oratore Roscius died in 62 B.C. And hereare some thoughts regarding the following page, that is the last page of the Play. I do not know if it was intended, and if it was, I do not necesseraly have an explanation but by counting from "And this word" , Light is the 33rd word death is the 67th word and Flourish is the 111th word (BACON Kay cipher). Notice that the use of W instead of a letter S is explained by the Greek letter Σ (Sigma) that looks like a W . I remind you that the same stratagem is used to conceal the name of the Star ALMEISAN on page 169 of the same play.

  10. WOW ! Incredible ! Thank you for sharing Eric ! For the anecdote, yesterday I ordered a French Book published in 1805 because of one sketch of an engraving of Nicolas Bacon. "Galerie historique des hommes les plus célèbres" by Landon (1805). https://www.istockphoto.com/fr/vectoriel/francis-bacon-philosophe-anglais-gravure-sur-cuivre-publié-en-1805-gm614420004-106316719 Notice the error ... F. BACON instead of N. BACON 🙂 This sketch is based on the following engraving by Adriaen van der Werff c. 1713 ... https://www.ngv.vic.gov.au/explore/collection/work/38005/ https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adriaen_van_der_Werff
  11. Hi Eric, You're welcome. Have these ever been published ? Indeed ! 😉
  12. Thank you for your feedback Eric ! I am not sure that the "dead hand" of Cervantes could be a reference to the "dead hand" of Francis Bacon (St Michael's monument). Indeed, Cervantes mentioned that he "lost the movement of the left hand for the glory of the right" in "Journey to Parnassus" published in 1614. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Viaje_del_Parnaso
  13. Hi CAB and thank you !🙏 Here is something that I have already posted few days ago that fits with your take on number 259 😉 . The mispagination in Hamlet is the same in at least 3 different copies of the First Folio : Misnumbered pages 259 (279) and 280 (282) in the First Folio (Brandeis University): https://internetshakespeare.uvic.ca/Library/facsimile/book/Bran_F1/787/index.html%3Fzoom=1200.html https://internetshakespeare.uvic.ca/Library/facsimile/book/Bran_F1/790/index.html%3Fzoom=800.html Misnumbered pages 259 (279) and 280 (282) in the First Folio (New South Wales) : https://internetshakespeare.uvic.ca/Library/facsimile/book/SLNSW_F1/767/?zoom=850 https://internetshakespeare.uvic.ca/Library/facsimile/book/SLNSW_F1/790/index.html%3fzoom=1275.html Misnumbered pages 259 (279) and 280 (282) in Copy 68 of the First Folio : https://www.loc.gov/resource/gdcwdl.wdl_11290/?st=gallery And sorry ! I know that my answer will have less value than the one of an unbiased researcher !😄
  14. Hi A Phoenix, Here is something that I found yesterday, and posted in another topic. In the course of my Baconian research, I came across the following book : William Rawley's miscellany; a collection of more than 900 anecdotes, apophthegms, memoranda, proverbs, and recipes. It seems to be a true goldmine. Here is the list of Lord St Albans Works printed ... https://iiif.biblissima.fr/collections/manifest/dc295431105873a8af7a6f77e915a028e144671d?tify={"pages":[60],"panX":0.411,"panY":0.215,"view":"info","zoom":1.218} And here is, on page 3, a great anecdote about Lord St Albans that I have never seen before. https://iiif.biblissima.fr/collections/manifest/dc295431105873a8af7a6f77e915a028e144671d?tify={"pages":[4],"panX":0.444,"panY":0.927,"view":"info","zoom":0.812} Yesterday, I tried to make a transcription, that was incomplete. This morning, I found the following website with a good transcription : https://www.bartleby.com/lit-hub/apophthegms-new-and-old/selected-from-a-common-place-book-in-the-hand-writing-of-dr-rawley/ A flattering courtier undertook to make a comparison betwixt my Lord St. Alban and Treasurer Cranfield. Said he, My Lord St. Alban had a pretty turning wit, and could speak well: but he wanted that profound judgment and solidity of a statesman that my Lord of Middlesex hath. Said a courtier that stood by: Sir I wonder you will disparage your judgment so much as to offer to make any parallel betwixt these two. I’ll tell you what: when these two men shall be recorded in our chronicles to after Ages, men will wonder how my Lord St. Alban could fall; and they will wonder how my Lord of Middlesex could rise. There was one would say of one that he thought every man fit for every place. About Sir Lionel Cranfield, Lord of Middlesex (in 1622) : https://www.historyofparliamentonline.org/volume/1604-1629/member/cranfield-sir-lionel-1575-1645 P.S: Interestingly, the year 1623 is mentioned on page 33, as well as ... Hugh Holland ! 🙂 https://iiif.biblissima.fr/collections/manifest/dc295431105873a8af7a6f77e915a028e144671d?tify={"pages":[35],"panX":0.416,"panY":0.217,"view":"info","zoom":1.218}
  15. Hi CAB, Here is something very interesting, playing with your idea. 🙂 There are 33 words between "comes" and "com'st in such a questionable shape". In Acrostic, from the Letter H of "HAM" to the letter T of "Thou" : H(8) + B(2) + B(2) + B(2) + T(19) = 33 33 = BACON And here are the lines 33 and 34 (33 + 34 = 67 = FRANCIS) of this page 257 ... BECKONS
  16. Thank you again A Phoenix ! 🙏❤️ I forgot to mention the connection between Jean Dassier and George Vertue. https://bathartandarchitecture.blogspot.com/2015/10/the-medallion-of-william-wake-by-jean.html "Jean Dassier visited England in 1728 in the hope of gaining a position at the Royal Mint which was ultimately unsuccessful but cemented his relationship with English patrons ... Vertue wrote in his notebook in April 1733 that the set of worthies was to be produced including medals of Chaucer Shakespeare, Milton, Camden, Bacon, Selden, Harvey, Boyle, Spenser, Locke, Clarke, Duke of Marlborough and Newton in the event only eight came to fruition. These medallions were produced at about the same time as those by Rysbrack and Scheemakers for the Temple of British Worthies Stowe House and those by Guelfi for Queen Caroline's Grotto. Vertue says that the Dassier medallion of Shakespeare is based on his engraving. The medal of Milton perhaps, should be viewed as a pendant to that of Shakespeare, and is based on an authentic pastel taken from life, engraved by Vertue and ratified by Milton's daughter Deborah." I wonder if Alexander Pope could have been involved. https://www.metmuseum.org/art/collection/search/708308 https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:WS_monument_by_Vertue.png
  17. A Phoenix, Eric, many thanks for your touching feedbacks.❤️ Rob, I have just listened Doc Watson's song and I love it. The 33 verses of this song (11 x 3) fit perfectly with this topic. 😉 CJ, thank you for your feedback too. Be sure that when I post the fruit of my research, I do it keeping in mind 3 possibilities : 1) This is nothing more than the fruit of my fertile imagination, 2) Those are secrets which were concealed by persons who believed Bacon was Shakespeare, 3) Those are secrets which were concealed by persons who knew Bacon was Shakespeare . Back to the Medals, is Aurora a reference to the Work of Jakob Boehme ? I keep open to this possibility. Is Aurora a reference to SHAKESPEARE/BACON ? For sure, in my view. Yesterday, I shared only the part of my research related with 3 of the 8 medals engraved by Jean Dassier. Let's take a closer look at the Medal of NEWTON. Notice the "Starry" Curtains of Newton's Monument that look like the "starry" veil of Aurora and the Star on top. For me, the Truth lies in the differences between Newton's monument engraved on the reverse of Dassier's medal and the original Newton's monument in Westminster Abbey. The Curtains were added and are a reference to the second "Aurora" of the First Folio. And I let you appreciate the similarities between this passage and ... SONNET 33 ! 😉 I told you that NON PROCUL DIES = 156 (Simple cipher) If we take in count the Prologue of Romeo and Juliet (that is missing in the First Folio), "The shady curtains from Auroras bed" is on line ... 156 ! 🙂 Now, notice that the Globe (mundus intellectualis ?) is much more detailed in this medal than the original one in Westminster Abbey, and that a star has been added. Does it mark an emplacement ? Talking about Sylva Sylvarum and the Sun/YHVH, I think that two of the 8 medals hide a reference to the title page of Sylva Sylvarum, the Medal of Newton that provides the Globe and the pillars drawn by the Curtains, and the Medal of Samuel Clarke that provide the Sun/YHVH. https://www.britishmuseum.org/collection/object/C_G3-IP-320 QUO VERITAS VOCAT (Where Truth calls) Kind regards.
  18. I think that this sentence from "Paradist Lost" was used instead of a sentence from Shakespeare's Work, so that we wonder about the phrase taken from Shakespeare which could replace it. The answer ? The answer can be found on page 303 (Yogh) of the First Folio in the play the King Lear. And here is one last suggestion ... HAPPY 3/03 ! 😊
  19. Few days ago, I told you that in my video "Filum Labyrinthi", I had shared only ONE PART of my research on page 303. Today, we are March 3 or 3/03. It is the perfect day to share with you the OTHER PART ! 😊 Here are 3 of the 8 medals from Jean Dassier's Series, The British Worthies (c.1730-1733). Note that the portrait of Shakesepare on Dassier's medal is taken from the Chandos picture. For me, these medals hide the fact that Francis Bacon was Shakespeare. HERE IS WHY ! Let's take a look at pages 156 and 259 of the First Folio. The Goddess Aurora, engraved on the reverse of Bacon's Medal, is mentioned on page 156 of the First Folio. And she is mentioned on line 53. We all know that Bacon, buccinator novi temporis (Trumpeter heralding a New Age), appears on both page 53 of COMEDIES and HISTORIES. And here is what can be found on page 259 (Kay cipher of WILLIAM SHAKESPERE) that is the 277th page. To be continued ...
  20. I would like to share with you an idea that came to my mind one hour ago facing an engraving of Cervantes. We all know the two very similar Francis Bacon's statues, the one at Trinity College and the one at St Michael Church (St Albans). The two main differences between them are the hat and the right hand. To be honest, I have always had a problem with the right hand of the Statue at St Albans (the original) that looks like a "dead Hand" contrarly to the right hand of the statue at Trinity College. In the flow of my thoughts, I wondered if this right hand (St Albans) could have been design to look like the head of a snake in reference to Asclepios. Thanks to the post of Eric about Cervantes Portrait, I decided to take a look at Cervantes engravings and I stopped at this one ... I did not know that Cervantes had lost the use of his left hand in a Battle and was called El Manco de Lepanto. Here is another engraving, after the one by Folkema, in which Cervantes has a cut hand. http://cervantes.bne.es/es/exposicion/obras/retrato-miguel-cervantes- (See image 3/9) What do you think ? Could the "dead hand" of Francis Bacon be a reference to the "dead hand" of Cervantes ? https://www.meisterdrucke.fr/fine-art-prints/John-Gilbert/267059/M.-Sancho-Panza.html Sancho Panza S + P = 33 = BACON
  21. Hi A Phoenix, Here is something very interesting ! 😊 Taking a look in acrostic, I noticed the word "CERDON" that is the name of a French Hamlet. I wondered what was the origin of the word. One of the explanation is that it would derive from "Cerdonium" meaning "fortified place". But "Cerdon" would also mean "Artisan or Craftman". And in the course of my research here is what I have just found ... https://human.libretexts.org/Bookshelves/Literature_and_Literacy/Writing_and_Critical_Thinking_Through_Literature_(Ringo_and_Kashyap)/06%3A_About_Poetry/6.01%3A_What_is_Poetry "Ben Johnson referred to the art of poetry as “the craft of making.” The old Irish word cerd, meaning “people of the craft,” was a designation for artisans, including poets. It is cognate with the Greek kerdos, meaning “craft, craftiness.” Two basic metaphors for the art of poetry in the classical world were carpentry and weaving. “Whatsoever else it may be,” W. H. Auden said, “a poem is a verbal artifact which must be as skillfully and solidly constructed as a table or a motorcycle.” FRANCIS BACON, THE CONCEAL'D POET EDIT : Interestingly enough, if we do not take the D of "Deducti"(from Deductio) in count, we can form the name CREON, another name of a French Hamlet . CREON was the brother of Jocasta and uncle of Antigone, who became KING of Thebes after the fall of Oedipus. And the name CREON comes from the Greek "KREON" meaning "MASTER". Thus, the aim of this acrostic could be to hide "CERD"(artisan/craftman/poet) and "CREON" (Master/king) FRANCIS BACON, MASTER OF THE CRAFT, KING OF POETS.
  22. The Authors preface to the Reader invites to take a look at the Beginning and at the End ( The ABC ... From A to Z) Here is my take on the decipherment of the end of the Preface ... https://www.google.fr/books/edition/The_History_of_the_Valorous_and_Wittie_K/dgCNj8Bo1e8C?hl=fr&gbpv=1 By counting backward from "Vale", the last word, "Squire" is the 33rd word. 33 = BACON "deciphered" is the 26th word. 26 # B.F. WE WILL NOT FORGET YOU !
  23. Hi CAB, I like this one too !😃 Here are some thoughts ... B = two I, Bacone Bacone is one another valid spelling of Bacon Here are the Dedications to Anthonie Bacone by Josuah Sylvester in "Du Bartas, His divine weekes"(1633) https://books.google.fr/books?id=XN8rKQZfZwEC&pg=PP7&hl=fr&source=gbs_selected_pages&cad=2#v=onepage&q&f=false And just for fun, you say ... "So I was interested in the emphasis on the Vowels and the strange ‘wit’ about them which isn’t clear." aei = 15 ou = 34 aeiou = 49 49 is the simple cipher of ... "WIT" Strange 'wit', indeed ! 😄
