One more for fun.

Shake-speake...

image.png.5a98512e4a8cf485ac058dd8b8f2a0df.png

39 words starting with Shake ending with speake, containing the BACON anagram, 39 is Simple cipher of F BACON.

Notice the word "addition".

F Bacon is Shakespeare.

To beggerly diuorcement.

Tudor I? Will Tudor I?

As Shakespeare and Bacon?

                             THE ACROSTIC BACO AND ANAGRAM BACON IN THE WINTER'S TALE.

                                                By my regard, but killed none so. Camillo,

                                                As you are certainly a gentleman, thereto

                                                Clerk-like experienced, which no less adorns

                                                Our gentry than our parents' noble names,

                                                In whose success we are gentle:

                                                 BACO AND BACON.

                                                            [The Winter's Tale: 1: 2: 390-4]

More number fun!

The Winter's Tale: Act 1, Scene 2

https://internetshakespeare.uvic.ca/doc/WT_F1/scene/1.2/index.html

The word "name" appears on the page before the acrostic and there are 33 words of speech between "name" and the BACON acrostic. 33 is the Simple cipher of BACON.

image.png.b0d43bdf564d13761c789c8cc3c206b2.png

If count everything, including the hanging "I have", the title at the top at the page and the page number, there are 67 words from "name" to "Names". 67 is the Simple cipher of FRANCIS.

image.png.565537c7313f23e4a2e4b0b03a2bd097.png

If we count everything as we did above starting with the first "name", there are 287 words up to the the third "Name". 287 is the Kaye cipher of WILLIAM TUDOR I and also FRA ROSIE CROSS.

And there are 33 lines between the first line of the acrostic and the line was "my Name."

Little more fun numbers to come later. 🙂

Farther down the page is a curiosity. The words "Sweare" and "shake" have 33 words between them. Is this a play on words; Sweare shake, or Shake sweare for Shakespeare?

image.png.84f179964e3689e46e4db305684db83a.png

If we start counting from the word "Names" in the lines that contain the I BACON acrostic, skipping italic words, "shake" is at number 287. To me that is significant as a count.

image.png.ac657c55860660be3937596a41c54cda.png

Remember we started counting with "Names" (plural). Bacon and Shakespeare? Noble Names indeed.

If we start counting with the "I" in the I BACON acrostic immediately after the "Noble Names" skipping italic words we see 103 words up to "Sir, I will". 103 is the Simple cipher of SHAKESPEARE.

image.png.0b6529fdf6e195e8a1a47ab4bc55d1b7.png

"Will" could be "Will Shakespeare" easy enough. It could also hint at "Will Tudor". The word "name" appears three times, once plural with, "Noble Names" "I will" might even hint at "Will I" (William Tudor I, or Willam Tudor the First).

Three names, all connecting with the right numbers, especially 33 and 287, but even 103.

Sir Francis Bacon, Will Shakespeare, and William Tudor I. Noble names indeed!!

Love these lines right after the Sweare shake curiosity:

The Fabrick of his Folly, whose foundation
Is pyl'd vpon his Faith, and will continue
The standing of his Body.

THE VARIOUS ARCANE DEVICES IN THE ADDRESS 'TO THE GREAT VARIETY OF READERS' PREFIXED TO 1623 SHAKESPEARE FIRST FOLIO REPEATEDLY CONVEYING THE CRYPTOGRAPHIC MESSAGE THAT FRANCIS BACON IS SHAKESPEARE

A large initial capital letter F which is used to indicate the presence of cryptic devices and ciphers was employed by Bacon in his early Shakespeare narrative poem The Rape of Lucrece, the first sonnet in the edition of Shakespeares Sonnets and as the first letter in the first verse of A Lover’s Complaint. The address ‘To the great Variety of Readers’ also commences with a large capital F within a woodcut resulting in the indentation of the first seven lines. The phrase in the first and second line ‘there you are number’d’ also points to the presence of ciphers within the lettered woodblock and the rest of the page. The large capital F with the capital R as with the previous examples given above forms the monogram FR for Francis. The reverse reading under the F lettered woodblock yields BACO the contracted name of its author Bacon and reading downward the first three lines yields an anagram of BACON. Furthermore, the first and last lines within the woodblock contain 39 letters F. Bacon in simple cipher.

The whole block contains a total of 68 words comprising 271 letters: 271+68=339 a quadruple cipher for Francis Bacon (100)/Francis Bacon (100)/Francis Bacon (1000)/F. Bacon (39) in simple cipher and conversely 271-68=203 a double cipher for Francis Bacon (100)/Shakespeare (103) in simple cipher. The page is framed by a headpiece and the title of its address ‘To the great Variety of Readers’, contains 6 words comprising 26 letters: 1+6+26=33 Bacon in simple cipher and at the bottom of the page is the page signature A 3 and the four words 'Iohn Heminge/Henrie Condell' containing 24 letters: 1+3+4+24=32 which plus the headpiece gives a total of 33 Bacon in simple cipher and when added to the 6 words in the address 33+6=39 F. Bacon in simple cipher. The printed text of the address comprises a sum total of 39 lines again F. Bacon in simple cipher. Thus the cryptographic message repeatedly conveyed in the address 'To the great Variety of Readers' prefixed to the 1623 Shakespeare First Folio is Francis Bacon is Shakespeare.

I came across a digital version of the Morgan Colman manuscript from 1592:

Fascinating! I have always wanted to see it!

Another big synchronicity Rob! Where did you find it? I posted about this book on 5 May, someone must perhaps have posted about the book on Facebook or somewhere? Isn’t it fabulous.

There are some incredible pictures in it. Highly recommend it to everyone. This is on page 33!

I've looked for it over a couple years or so and gave up. I started looking again the other day and tracked it down from a biblio note somewhere when I saw the title of the work for the first time. I only knew it as the Morgan Colman Manuscript until then.

It is exciting to me for sure!

EDIT: This was the article that led me to it:

The Saxon Connection: St Margaret of Scotland, Morgan Colman’s Genealogies, and James VI & I’s Anglo-Scottish Union Project

Funny now the Yale link is showing up on Google and I never saw that before! They must have just recently added it.

Makes you wonder just how many other fabulous books are waiting to be discovered now that almost everything has been scanned and digitised. K

It seems almost everything we know about is available online now.

I used to go to the USF (University of South Florida) library and peruse the microfiche collections from the late 1500's. I think there are still tons of books not scanned for the internet and I'd imagine a wealth of undiscovered surprises awaiting us all. 🙂

Good morning everyone,

I would like to share with you my latest discoveries with you.

I've just finished the photomontage that will be the model of the drawing for the National Cryptographic Museum's Contest.

And this morning, as I was studying it to be sure that all the elements were there, it brought me back to the page 57 of The Merry Wives of Windsor.

I took it as the sign that I had something to unveil in this page !

And here is the fruit of my research ...

Rob (Light-of Truth), please feel free to move this post in another topic if you think about another one that seems more appropriate.

The recent post of Mr Simon Miles reminded me his great videos on The Merchant of Venice and The Phoenix and the Turtle.

I had not watched his video about "The Mysterie of The Phoenix and the Turtle" since several years.

I felt the need to watch it again.

 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hjx1obZKzZI

Something caught my eyes at 51:43, when Mr Simon shares the work of William Bellamy (Ben Jonson and the Art of Anagram) on "The Phoenix Analysde" , a poem that can be found in a book published in 1601.

I believe that this poem conceals more that just the identity of Anthony Bacon.

I think it confirms the bond that exists and is concealed in the poem "The Phoenix and the Turtle" ( discovered and masterfully showed by Mr Simon) between Queen Elizabeth, Robert Devereux, Anthony and Francis Bacon.

EDIT 

BOND = 33 (simple cipher) = BACON (simple cipher)

BOND = 67 (reverse cipher) = FRANCIS ( simple cipher)

I think that I found something else, an interesting feature concealed in the poem.

image.png.9855e18dce8d93d37e9548d102e1236e.png

If we move the second verse "Receive it for a Fable," in order to align the letter R of "Receive" with the O of "NOw" and the B of "Bird", then the word "Orbe" appears. "Orbe" is the French word for "Orb", emblem of ROYAL power.

Moreover, a symmetry appears with ROBERT on one side of ELISA (the Phoenix) and FRANCIS on the other side !

Could it be an additional proof that Robert Devereux and Francis Bacon were the sons of Queen Elizabeth ?

Yann, you mentioned ROBERT is 74 Simple cipher a little while back. I knew that in the back of my mind, since that is my name. FOWLER has the same four cipher numbers as ROBERT. My name and WILLIAM TUDOR have similar numbers.

But you triggered me to think of ROBERT Dudley. The Father of Francis Bacon is ROBERT which is 74 Simple cipher, the same as WILLIAM and TUDOR.

DUDLEY is 67 Simple cipher, the same as FRANCIS.

Obviously Elizabeth and Robert Dudley did not plan that, and we could call it a "coincidence."

Yet, I have this felling that certain numbers, maybe all numbers, somehow vibrate or connect with the Universe and numbers, like molecules, connect and are a background fabrick to our reality.

The numbers of my name fit with me being a Tudorian Baconian. Robert Dudley was destined to be Elizabeth's lover with numbers playing some role, on some level.

Just thinking out loud. 😉

Hi everyone,

I would like to share with something that I found this morning.

As I was looking a video by Ron Roffel, an oxfordian, about The Epistle Dedicatorie, concluding that De Vere was Shakespeare, I noticed something very interesting that led me to analyse the 2nd page of The Epistle Dedicatorie in light of my later comments in "The French Academie" Topic.

 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gTvRwj42NdE

2022-08-07.png.26c42050aaf6c6f5a6cf6d3af498d4e0.png

https://internetshakespeare.uvic.ca/Library/facsimile/book/Bran_F1/6/index.html%3fzoom=1200.html

When I saw the word "sow" vertically, in the middle of this passage, I immediatly thought about Mediocria, the Middle Way and the message that I discovered hidden in the middle of the page 103 of the French Academie

https://sirbacon.org/bacon-forum/index.php?/topic/187-the-french-academy-1586/

1807774783_MiddlePath.png.cf2124493bd8848cdd84df806e06f694.png

I decided to follow the Middle Way of the 2nd page of The Epistle Dedicatorie and here is what I discovered ...

562409371_2022-08-07(1).png.6c3a05fca206768732af8268c79a7122.png

As you can see, all is almost about Francis Bacon, but I could not exclude the presence of De Vere and Dee, that fits with the instruction "finde THEM" ( The Sons of Wisdom ! The Guardians ?) and gives another meaning to the last sentence "to shrew their gratitude to both the living and the dead".

I wanted to look at the page.

https://internetshakespeare.uvic.ca/Library/facsimile/book/Bran_F1/6/index.html%3Fzoom=1200.html

I found "de vere" then saw "great gas". 😉

image.png.5a9c890933980627efe066a6501d04c6.png

There is more as Allisnum2er (Yann) pointed out. But this jumped out at me!
