The Map and the Manuscript

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. Thanks to Larry for clearing me to announce the publication of my book here. Although it is not about Francis Bacon, (at all!), it does touch on topics which might be of interest to B'hivers, from encryption, to geometry, to poetry, to mysterious parchments and much more. The book is called: The Map and the Manuscript: Journeys in the Mysteries of the Two Rennes. 

It documents a research project which has occupied me for more than 20 years. The subject is the Affair of Rennes-le-Château, and it contains some deep solutions to some of the core puzzles which make up this most fascinating nest of enigmas. It's 500 pages long, contains more than 140 colour images, and, hopefully, will prove to be an entertaining and possibly even mind-blowing read. 

Now available, in hardback, paperback and Kindle:

If you decide to purchase a copy, thank you! I would welcome any comments you might like to share. And please leave a review!

Ok, one more plug: here is my website: simonmmiles.com.

I have my various Bacon videos and presentations that I made during my Baconian career, 2000 - 2017, up there to watch and read.


Thanks for letting me plug the book, Larry!

Dear Mr Miles, congratulations on your new book !

To be honest, I am slightly saddened to see that you talk about your "Baconian carreer" with the past tense.

The truth is that I discovered your work 6 years ago at the very beginning of my own journey in the world of Francis Bacon and it has profoundly impacted me.

I would like to take this occasion to thank you for your unvaluable work.

Now, I am looking forward to discovering your take on the Mysteries of Rennes-le-Château. 🙂

Congratulations Simon, I have been periodically looking to see if it's available and will read it as soon as I'm done with my essay in progress, which is (as expected) turning out to be a lot of work.  I am reading your notes on Marlowe and the English literary scene 1580-1600 and have to say thanks, it's an excellent distillation of a complex picture I'd wondered about for years. I look forward to going through the other material on your website.

Thank you everyone for your very kind and encouraging words! 

I really appreciate also the comments from Allisnum2er. Thank you. It's really heartening to know that my research has inspired others. As to my so-called Baconian career, well, perhaps I should never say never. There's no shortage of material to work on, that's for sure. For the moment, my attention has been on my book project. 

Thanks again everyone!

Welcome to B’Hive Simon. I’ve just had a thoroughly enjoyable morning listening to your Phoenix and Turtle presentation at SAT on your website, and I’m making good inroads into your book. Wishing you every success with it.
