Allisnum2er Posted November 15, 2022 Share Posted November 15, 2022 From Du Bartas: His Divine Weekes and Workes (1633) "As I have said, the 1623 folio of the plays came out almost at the same time as the “De Augmentis,” and there appeared also in 1623 an edition of Sidney’s “Arcadia,” the title page of which is headed by a hog with a slip knot round its neck to show us that it is a hanged-hog, a Bacon. The hanged hog is covered with a porcupine’s skin (Sidney’s crest was a porcupine) and it also has porcupine’s feet to teach us that Bacon wrote under the porcupine’s skin and, as it were, with the porcupine’s hand, the works known under the name of Sir Philip Sidney. In “ Du Bartas,” translated 1605 by Joshua Sylvester, at B2, we find a wonderful Beacon (Bacon) emblem, which tells us quite clearly, if we have sense enough to understand it, that Sidney is really nothing, and that “ Our Apollo,” “ world’s wonder,” the “rare more-than-man ” is in fact Bacon."

Published one year after the 2nd Folio of Shake-speare, my inkling was that something special was hidden in this Book. Playing with numbers, I could see 33 = BACON, 16+33 = 49 = WIT/WTI, 1+6+3+3 = 13 and all its symbolism. https://books.google.bj/books?id=XN8rKQZfZwEC&printsec=frontcover&hl=fr&source=gbs_ge_summary_r&cad=0#v=onepage&q&f=false In the book, a strange poem, in the form of a pyramid, with kind of a Hog on its top and mentionning Sydney, immediatly caught my eyes. I discovered thanks to Sirbacon.org that the poem had already caught the eyes of Edwin Durning-Lawrence. And I noticed another interesting detail ... Flipping through the pages of the Book, I found another Hog ... And this Hog was also on the top of a pyramid ... To be continued ... 4 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
