  1. Thank you again for sharing CAB. And thank you A Phoenix for that indispensable reminder. πŸ™ CAB, here is one suggestion based on your unfold/infold idea, with fran. 33 As I read through your post, I wondered if Bacon could have used the same principle in the very first sentence beginning with Fran. and mentioning "unfold yourself". The fact is that after Fran. there are ... 32 letters ... off by one. But what if "&" was the key ? Indeed "&" was used instead of "and". Gilles-Marie Oppenord (1672-1742), Public domain, via Wikimedia Commons https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ampersand The Ampersand is originated as a ligature of "et". Maybe (and this is just an idea) are we asking to count "&" as 2 (et). In this way, " Fran. Nay answer me: Stand & unfold your selfe." => Fran. 33
  2. Hi Lawrence, Dear Sir, I have duly received your favor of the 5th inst. With respect to the busts and pictures I will put off till my return from America all of them except Bacon ... Do you believe it is by coincidence that Bacon is the 33rd word of Jefferson's Letter ? 😊
  3. Hi Rob, Here is, I think, a starting place to answer your question : https://www.google.fr/books/edition/The_Portable_Thomas_Jefferson/1hbAavG-aLEC?hl=fr&gbpv=1 Take a look at Jefferson's Letter to John Trumbull talking about the three portraits (busts) of Bacon, Locke and Newton.
  4. Yesterday evening, I came across Shakspere's cartoons and the following one made me laugh. πŸ˜„ http://www.wepsite.de/shakespeare,cartoon,spelling.htm Then, I found this very interesting one related with "All the world's a stage" ... https://thomasnast.com/cartoons/shakespeares-voyage-of-life/ Notice that it says : " All the World's a stage, and the men and women, merely players" instead of " All the World's a stage and ALL the men ..." Thanks to the missing "ALL" there are 33 words instead of 34. 33 = BACON
  5. Hi CAB, I like this candidate ! πŸ™‚ Here are some thoughts and ideas after a quick glance to the page. https://internetshakespeare.uvic.ca/Library/facsimile/book/SLNSW_F1/42/?zoom=1275 "That's the Letter I writ to her friend." can be linked to "As you injoynd me ; I have write your Letter ..." followed by "Vnto the secret, nameles friend of yours" that contains 33 letters πŸ™‚ 33 = BACON Interestingly, by counting from "As you injoynd me ; I have write your Letter ..." the 24th line is ... "I,I : you writ them Sir, at my request" that contains 27 letters (3^3) As you said I = 9 (simple cipher) 9 = 3x3 And 9 + 24 = 33 And by counting from "As you injoynd me ; I have write your Letter..." the 33rd and 34th lines are ... Oh Jest unseene, inscrutible : invisible, ( 33 letters πŸ™‚ ) As a nose on a mans face, or a Wethercocke on a steeple 33 = BACON 33 + 34 = 67 = FRANCIS
  6. Hi Eric, To add escutcheons is a great idea. Talking about a suitable background image, here is another idea. πŸ˜‰ "Francis Bacon, the Glory of his Age and Nation, the Adorner and Ornament of Learning, was borne in York House or York Place in the Strand" It could be another image of Whitehall in color, or in black and white for the contrast with the portraits. Edit: To stay within the theme of "trees", I also love the following general view of St Albans. https://www.stalbanshistory.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/05/February_2018.pdf
  7. Hi Peethagoras, You say : "My interest stems mainly from the image at the top of title page of Euclid's Elements by Billingsley/Dee. I noted the winged Time figure which brought to mind the circular image on the title page of New Atlantis. The old man reminded me of John Dee, and the younger man Bacon." Do you know that this title page of Euclid's Elements is based on the title page of "Cosmographical glasses" published in 1559 ? https://cudl.lib.cam.ac.uk/view/PR-L-AST-00009-00044-C-00005/1 In 1559, Francis Bacon was not born yet. This title page was also used much later for several books of songs by John Dowland. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_First_Book_of_Songs_(1597) In regard to your reference to JOB 41:29 the problem is that King James Bible was published in 1611. Prior, to the King James Bible, we have the Geneva Bible (1560) and the Tyndale Bible (1526) written in English. The Tyndale Bible is a translation of the New Testament, which means that we can find a translation of Job in english only in the Geneva Bible. The fact is that the Geneva Bible already mentions "the shaking of the speare" in 1560, but this is not in JOB 41:29. This is JOB 41:20 https://studybible.info/Geneva/Job 41 Another name given to the whirligig was scopperel. https://anjasquest.wordpress.com/tasks/toys/active-play-toys/hobby-horses-and-scopperels/ You will find more image with this word. http://ludopetit.com/ateliers/page-d-exemple/moulin-a-vent-du-moyen-age/ (Notice, amongst the images, the one of the boy with a whirligig on the back of a Boar πŸ™‚ ) "When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things." I Corinthians 13:11 This is not the case of the FOOL. πŸ˜‰ That is the reason why you will find images of a fool with a stick-horse and a scopperel. PAZZIA means folly or madness
  8. This is Fantastic, Eric ! What a great preliminary work ! ❀️ I second A Phoenix . Indeed, this is clear and easy to read. I like the idea of two trees. In case you would like to make only one ancestral tree, you could swap Francis Bacon and Robert Devereux, you could place Anthony Bacon to the same level as his brothers at the bottom right with Nicholas Bacon and Anne Bacon right above him, next to Queen Elizabeth. It would visually mark the proximity between Queen Eizabeth and both her Keeper of the Great Seal and her leading Lady-in-Waiting. Kind regards.
  9. Open minds think alike ! 😊 Now, I am looking forward to reading your upcoming post about Don Quixote !
  10. Yesterday evening, my research led me to Don Quixote and the famous Cide Hamete Benengeli. Here is the great work on the subjet by Francis Carr: https://sirbacon.org/quixote.html Yesterday, before going to bed, I wondered what was the simple cipher of "Cide Hamete Benengeli" The answer ? 141 For me, 141 is the simple cipher of FRANCIS (67) TUDOR (74) This morning, I woke up with this thought in mind : " It would have been great if instead of "Hamete" it was "Amete"!" Why? Because Amete could be seen as a transliteration of Emeth "AMT" the hebrew word for Truth Cide Amete Benengeli would provide us with the letters B,A,C for BACon And the simple cipher of Cide Amete Benengeli is ... 133 133 = 100 + 33 = FRANCIS BACON - 33 133 = ROSI CROSSE Before heading off to work, I dedided to take a brief glimpse in the second part of Don Quixote (1615). Imagine my surprise ! πŸ™‚ https://archive.org/details/segundapartedeli00cerguat/page/472/mode/2up Sorry, I am not an expert in "Bacon and Don Quixote", so maybe someone already mentioned this by the past. Along the way, I noticed something else that is, in my view, very interesting. Last year, I shared with you my thoughts regarding one of the poems of "Underwoods" by Ben Jonson https://archive.org/details/workesofbenjamin00jons/page/210/mode/2up Notice that in this passage Ben Jonson mentions Amadis de Gaule and Don Quixote. Here is the 277th leaf of Don Quixote Part 2 ... https://archive.org/details/segundapartedeli00cerguat/page/554/mode/2up 277 = 100 (FRANCIS BACON) + 177 (WILLIAM SHAKE-SPEARE)
  11. Hi Rob, I hope you are well. Indeed, R is in the middle. Good idea, I shall see what is the result if we skip the R. Regarding the windows panes, I noticed that some of them had vertical stripes and some of them had horizontal stripes. But it is difficult to see all the panes and to say if it was intended or not. EDIT : In fact, the result is the same if we skip the R or the Y.
  12. Here are some thoughts. The sentence with its uppercase and lowercase letters lead me to believe that Bi-literal cipher could be in play. The problem is that there are 31 letters. Here are three possibilities : ABAAA AABAB BAAAA AAAAA BAABA AAABA A I F R A T C A BAAAA ABABB AAAAA AAAAB AABAA AABAA T M A B E E Or, if we skip the Y that is the only stylized letter ABAAA AABAB BAAAA AAAAB AABAA AABAA I F R B E E Personally, I like the first possibility ( FRAT. I.C.) and the last one ( FREE - I.B.) FREE = 33 = BACON (simple cipher) FREE = 67 ( reverse cipher) = FRANCIS (simple cipher) I.B. for Iachin and Boaz BEE. What do you think ? EDIT : Now, I wonder if the square windows panes could hide a message. (Imagine two colors , light blue and white, working by group of five from top to bottom and from left to right😊)
  13. Hi A Phoenix, I have just found a great "error" in The Decameron (1620)😁 The 7th Day is governed by Dioneus, but on page 24, the only page of the book that mentions BACON, we can read on top "governed by Madam Eliza" πŸ™‚ . In fact, Madam Eliza governed the 6th day. Thus, we have possibly a reference to FRANCIS (67) BACON and ELIZA (Queen Elizabeth)
  14. Hi everyone, In another topic, Peethagoras recently mentioned the page 110 of "Much adoe about Nothing". "But she would spell him backward: it faire fac'd" https://internetshakespeare.uvic.ca/Library/facsimile/book/SLNSW_F1/128/?zoom=850 A closer look to this page allowed me to find two more "Bacon's wit" hidden in acrostic. BACON'S WIT I remind you that BACON'S WIT = 100 = FRANCIS BACON Interestingly, the "O" is the 33rd word. wit is the 47th word ( 47 = ATHENA simple cipher). And in the middle (mediocria) we find "hemi" that is the Latin for "half" If we use the B of Beat. it gives us : BACoN's WIT - To F.B. (BACoN Stand I) If we do not use the B of Beat., it gives us : To F. BACON'S WIT Note that there are many other ways to form the name Bacon in this passage. Interestingly, in the middle (mediocria), we have adonis heart - pork I really do not know if it was intended or not, because "adonis" is not found in the first quarto of the play. If it was not intended, by chance, a reference to "Adonis' heart" exists in Shakespeare's Work : Venus and Adonis β€˜Give me my hand,’ saith he, β€˜why dost thou feel it?’ β€˜Give me my heart,’ saith she, β€˜and thou shalt have it; O! give it me, lest thy hard heart do steel it, And being steel’d, soft sighs can never grave it: Then love’s deep groans I never shall regard, Because Adonis’ heart hath made mine hard.’ β€˜For shame,’ he cries, β€˜let go, and let me go; My day’s delight is past, my horse is gone, And β€˜tis your fault I am bereft him so: I pray you hence, and leave me here alone: For all my mind, my thought, my busy care, Is how to get my palfrey from the mare.’
  15. Hi Peethagoras, I imagine that your interest in whirligig is link to the "whirlegigge of Time" πŸ™‚ . (Twelfe Night,or, what you Will - Act V scene 1) https://internetshakespeare.uvic.ca/Library/facsimile/book/Bran_F1/293/index.html%3fzoom=1200.html (Notice that "whirlegigge" is the 33rd word of the column.) I remember that when I discovered that the Kay cipher of "Lotd" was 74, I wondered if the "t" instead of "r" was really an error. Anyway, to answer to your request, here is something that I noticed few years ago in Emblemata Sacra by Daniel Cramer (1624). https://www.arkeotopia.org/en/resources/94-blog/235-ressources-article-medieval-toys.html And personally, talking about the whirligig of Time , I like this postcard designed by ... Robert Dudley ! πŸ˜‰
  16. Here is a very short video without music taken from my upcoming "special video" to share with you some of my research on the number 196. The page number 196 (VVILLIAM SHAKESPEARE simple cipher) of the First Folio is the 213th page by counting from Ben Jonson's epigram "To The Reader". 213 # BAC with 2 + 1 + 3 = 6 # F F. BAC. stands for Francis Bacon For me, this page 196 reveals us the identity of the conceal'd poet. This conceal'd man.mp4
  17. For Oxfordians, it is VVILLIAM SHAKESPEARE because it gives VV = 40 (20+20) following by 17 letters, given their famous 1740 that they link to Edward de Vere. Just for fun, and from my baconian point of view, if 177 = 100 + 77 = FRANCIS BACON + MINERVA (Bacon's Muse), 196 = 119 + 77 = MEDIOCRIA FIRMA (Bacon's motto) + MINERVA (Bacon's Muse). 😊
  18. Using the great tool of Rob (Light-of-Truth) it seems that CESARIO share more than just the same simple cipher with "FRANCIS" πŸ™‚ In this case, it is easily understandable as the E and the O of cEsariO transform themselves into the F and the N of FraNcis. EDIT : Did you notice the reference to Sir Toby on the same "line" ? https://internetshakespeare.uvic.ca/Library/facsimile/book/Bran_F1/275/index.html%3fzoom=1200.html Another hidden reference to Toby/Tobie Matthews, Bacon's best friend and alter ego ? https://internetshakespeare.uvic.ca/Library/facsimile/book/Bran_F1/20/index.html%3fzoom=1200.html (Sorry for the lack of references but I do not know who noticed these acrostics in the first instance.)
  19. Hi CAB, Thank you. Personally, I was not familiar with this one. https://internetshakespeare.uvic.ca/Library/facsimile/book/Bran_F1/423/index.html%3fzoom=1200.html Here is something interesting. If the last line has 33 letters, the previous line has 27 letters (3^3). And these two lines are lines 16 and 17. 16 + 17 = 33
  20. Hi Eric, Personnely, I pushed the "WOW" button after reading the incredible story of this painting, thanks to the link you provided. πŸ™‚ Thank you for sharing.πŸ™
  21. About Adam's skull: https://golgotha.site/adams-skull/ I see a link with page 277 of Hamlet. 277 = 100 (FRANCIS BACON) + 177 (WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE) https://internetshakespeare.uvic.ca/Library/facsimile/book/SLNSW_F1/785/index.html%3fzoom=1275.html And I have already shared my thoughts and the fruits of my research on this page and its link ,in my view, with Shakespeare's monument, in another topic. About the harrowing of Hell : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harrowing_of_Hell "For just as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the sea monster, so for three days and three nights the Son of Man will be in the heart of the earth." Matthew 12:40
  22. Here is a reminder, something that Kate shared with us two months ago in another topic ... Those are a R and an S that stand for Richard Smith, the printer.
