  1. Hi CAB and thank you !πŸ™ Here is something that I have already posted few days ago that fits with your take on number 259 πŸ˜‰ . 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 !πŸ˜„
  2. 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 ...

  3. Hi CAB, Here is something very interesting, playing with your idea. πŸ™‚ 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
  4. Thank you again A Phoenix ! πŸ™β€οΈ 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
  5. 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. πŸ˜‰ 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 ! πŸ˜‰ 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 ! πŸ™‚ 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.
  6. 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 ! 😊
  7. 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 ...
  8. 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
  9. 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 β€œthe craft of making.” The old Irish word cerd, meaning β€œpeople of the craft,” was a designation for artisans, including poets. It is cognate with the Greek kerdos, meaning β€œcraft, craftiness.” Two basic metaphors for the art of poetry in the classical world were carpentry and weaving. β€œWhatsoever else it may be,” W. H. Auden said, β€œa 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.
  10. 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 !
  11. Hi CAB, I like this one too !πŸ˜ƒ 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 β€˜wit’ about them which isn’t clear." aei = 15 ou = 34 aeiou = 49 49 is the simple cipher of ... "WIT" Strange 'wit', indeed ! πŸ˜„
  12. Hi Rob, It has certainly already been noticed that the first sentence of the Authors preface to the Readers contains 33 words. Here is some thoughts/ ideas regarding the 2nd page ... https://www.google.fr/books/edition/The_History_of_the_Valorous_and_Wittie_K/dgCNj8Bo1e8C?hl=fr&gbpv=1 Interestingly From Reader to Reader we can find "by f. bacon arm" I also like the idea that with the "ad" of the Reader on top (or with only the "d" and with the "a" in but "a" stepfather) it gives: Drama by F. Bacon Father is the 33rd word (33=BACON) "Free-wil" is on the 33rd line of the preface
  13. https://www.google.fr/books/edition/The_History_of_the_Valorous_and_Wittie_K/dgCNj8Bo1e8C?hl=fr&gbpv=1 Enjoy ! πŸ˜‰
  14. Hi Phoenixes, I second Eric. We can never thank you enough for your commitment. There is no thank you big enough to recognize the incredible number of hours you have invested and that you invest in a daily basis to share your knowledge for the benefit of the B'Hive community and for the cause. πŸ™β€οΈ Regarding the Eulogy 23, do you know if someone already suggest another possibility than the death of James I in 1625, to explain the reference to "Jame's Constellation" ? I've just learned that James VI of Scotland was called the "Bright Star of the North." What if it was a hidden reference to the "Brightest Star of the Northern Sky" that is Arcturus in the constellation of ... BΓΆotes, the celestial Spear-shaker ? http://www.atlascoelestis.com/Bainbridge.htm
  15. I have your answer CAB ! πŸ˜‰ This is something that I noticed as I was researching about the use of the letter "yogh" instead of a letter "B" in the First Folio. https://internetshakespeare.uvic.ca/Library/facsimile/book/Bran_F1/401/index.html%3fzoom=1200.html Franke (Francis) Bore (Bacon) Notice that these are lines 61 and 62. In my view, 61 is the simple cipher of JANUS and 62 is F.B. Interestingly, 61 + 62 = 123 with 1+2+3=6 (F.BAC.) Prince F. BAC "A Crownes-worth of good Interpretation" contains 33 letters. Prince. 33 You will probably tell me "I do not see any yogh !"😊 Indeed! In this copy of the First Folio a vertical line was added but not in the following one ... https://internetshakespeare.uvic.ca/Library/facsimile/book/SLNSW_F1/401/index.html%3Fzoom=850.html The letter yogh or ȝoȝ was used in the middle english and it hides the number 33. 33 = BACON I shared one part of my research on the page 303 of the First Folio and its link with The myth of Icarus and "mediocria firma"(Francis Bacon's motto) at the end of my video "Filum Labyrinthi". https://internetshakespeare.uvic.ca/Library/facsimile/book/SLNSW_F1/811/index.html%3Fzoom=1275.html EDIT : "In these 199 pages St. Albans is only mentioned twice, on pages 67 and 81, neither time being any kind of historical reference." 67 + 81 = 148 148 is the simple cipher of ... WILLIAM TUDOR 😊
  16. Hi Eric, You also have the Bust of Francis Bacon in the Library of Trinity College, Dublin. Rob Hurson, CC BY-SA 2.0 https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/2.0, via Wikimedia Commons https://www.tcd.ie/library/old-library/long-room/ The Bust of Francis Bacon is well accompanied, right between the Bust of Shakespeare (Stall BB) and the Bust of Milton (Stall DD). Why the fact that Bacon is the keeper of Stall CC does not surprise me ? πŸ˜„
  17. 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
  18. 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 ? 😊
  19. 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.
  20. 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
  21. 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
