Here is the logo from New Atlantis title page.

 

I don't know if this has been picked up, before, but see below the foot of Time, the round item can also be seen

In the buttons of the Droushout 'portrait' (the one with the huge collar).

Well spotted. I suspect you are the first to notice the resemblance of this detail in the FF portrait and the frontispiece of New Atlantis.

Yes Hi Eric. Pleased to correspond mate.

I also wonder about Bacon's (Rawley's?) choice of this New Atlantis emblem, and those letters R - S below the foot: is that a fancy X between them?

 

The reason I ask is because of the last five words in Bacon's tale: "The rest was not perfected":

 

                                                                                         R E S T ==> R  et  S ==>  R  S.

 

If that symbol between R and S is indeed an X, it might mean Rho eS  cross,  Rose Cross?

 

What do you think?

In passing, just having considered that row of buttons:  how many do you count? I make 13 going on 14 - rather like a certain 13 year old Iuliet Capulet

her name containing 13 letters. (6 and 7).

 

Not unlike Romeo Mountague, his contains 14.

Hi P. Thanks for reply. Numbers and ciphers are a mystery to me, however you raise a challenging riddle: what is the significance of R S? The scroll you mentioned could be an elaborate X, or it could be a device to attract the eye to the two mysterious letters. Your solution is most ingenious, but I wonder if there is a more straight forward interpretation - any ideas anyone?

"The rest was not perfected": where does this come from? I checked "New Atlantis" which ends with a Latin invocation praising and glorifying God forever. 

https://archive.org/details/fnewatlantis00baco/page/n133/mode/2up

Your mention of "New Atlantis" started me off down a dark and dangerous path - cartography, which I know nothing about. "Atlantis" obviously derives from Plato's "Timaeus" (360 BC) "...in front of the mouth which you Greeks call, as you say, 'the pillars of Heracles,' there lay an island which was larger than Libya and Asia together..." and ..." in this island of Atlantis there existed a confederation of kings, of great and marvellous power, which held sway over all the island, and over many other islands also and parts of the continent..." But when was the name of Plato's allegorical island first applied to the ocean which separates Europe and Africa from the "New World"? 

In the early 17th Century, it seems - around the time of Francis Bacon. This map dating from 1644 names the northern half (above the Equator?) "Mare Atlanticum", while the southern ocean is called the Ethiopian Ocean ("Oceanus Aethiopicus"):

image.jpeg.78cb23d5a4b58bfa936bee562ce7a0b4.jpeg

By the early 18th Century, the name "Atlantic" signified both the northern and southern oceans, with the Ethiopian Sea confined to Western Africa, as in this map from 1710:

image.png.3fbb6c63066197bfa681b6d3e863c57c.png

In Tudor times it was simply called "Oceanus Occidentalis" or Western Ocean, as in this map from 1570:

1235328731_oceanusoccidentalis21570.webp.211a50deaafdf948e8fcf5bb23027a2c.webp

It seems, then, that before Sir Francis Bacon wrote "The New Atlantis" the word "Atlantic" had not been applied to the ocean between Europe and America. Did his last visionary book somehow inspire the cartographers of the mid 16th-early 17th Centuries?

There are two references to the "Atlantic" in "The New Atlantis" on pages 8 and 9:

 

And for our own ships, they went sundry voyages, as well to your straits, which you call the Pillars of Hercules, as to other parts in Atlantic and Mediterrane Seas;

...yet so much is true, that the said country of Atlantis, as well that of Peru, then called Coya, as that of Mexico, then named Tyrambel, were mighty and proud kingdoms in arms, shipping and riches: so mighty, as at one time (or at least within the space of ten years) they both made two great expeditions; they of Tyrambel through the Atlantic to the Mediterrane Sea; and they of Coya through the South Sea upon this our island...

 

Note: I believe the "South Sea" was another name for the Ethiopian Ocean, before "Atlantic came to signify both North and South Oceans. In any case, Lord Bacon seems to have been at the cutting edge of history in his use of the word "Atlantic" which, in "The New Atlantis", seems to apply to the North Ocean.

Just a thought re your discussion above because, synchronistically I have been looking at this terrestrial globe on Sketchfab. https://sketchfab.com/3d-models/willem-janszoon-blaeu-terrestrial-globe-1606-c22ff82e3530492f91d66fcd0c24d568 It is from 1606 and is the counterpart to the 1602 celestial one that we have been discussing on another thread.

This is a great way to see what they knew about and the names they called places in that era. This one is interesting to look at the Oak Island area and America.

The Prime Meridian was once set through the Fortunate Isles - which have a huge backstory https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fortunate_Isles which is likely all tied in with Atlantis. They are in the Azores/Canary islands location. See Plutarch (46AD) in that link. Also if you look at the word Atlantis in ancient Greek it look like Atlantic  Ἀτλαντικός

Thanks Kate. This shows that "Mare Atlanticum" was in use prior to New Atlantis.

here's where to find it Eric: 1627, after Bacon's death. It was the first appearance in quarto size, and in English. His chaplain Rawley wrote "A Worke unfinished" on the front, and at the end of the tale "The rest was not perfected". I consider Rawley to have been a master at the art of ciphering, and carried out much of what is attributed to Bacon.

If you compare the large two letters under the hoof of Time, you see R S. The REST can be read in English and Latin thus: R et S, or, R S.

An even closer look shows that the R has in fact been altered to make P look like R. (Well I think so).

Many have commented on that "Bacon" emblem on the front, and many have been mistaken. I recall reading an essay on the subject, by someone who runs a Bacon charity or trust, at the time I passed him some important info on the emblem, such that the info would have destroyed his arguments, but although he acknowledged the info, the essay still remains unchanged.

Does anyone have any more thoughts on the R & S at the bottom of the engraving...?

Hi Eric, I think that Peethagoras makes a valid point when he says that this is a P that looks like an R.

It gives  P & S with P + S = 15 +18 = 33 = BACON

And regarding the "&" , thanks to the synchronicities 😊, I think that it could be a "TURK'S HEAD" knot !!! 😉

So far, we've got:

1.  R E S T ==> R  et  S ==>  R  S..           If that symbol between R and S is indeed an X, it might mean Rho eS  cross,  Rose Cross?

2.  An even closer look shows that the R has in fact been altered to make P look like R. (Well I think so).

3.  P & S with P + S = 15 +18 = 33 = BACON

 

IMHO: Why would anyone change the "P" into an "R"? Looks like an "R" to me that connects neatly with the knot. I'm still baffled by what R. S. could signify....?

I thought it best to add this to what has already been said regarding the circular emblem from New Atlantis:

 

Firstly, the same inner scene was printed on the front title page of the first Geneva bible New Testament. (see GEN_1)

Secondly, I found an even earlier emblem as the frontispiece of a book, I forget the name, but will find it later. (see EARLIER_1)

You will see that it is identical to the one shown on New Atlantis, and predates it by many years, which means Bacon or Rawley had no hand in the design.

I think the emblem has certain moot points which Bacon/Rawley thought usable for their own ends. The main logo of Time revealing Truth no doubt being

the main thing. There is also an link between the figure of Time with his scythe, and the front title page of Billingsly's translation of Euclid. But that's another story.

I offer the letters R S from New Atlantis and the much earlier print, so a comparison might be made. Notice how deteriorated the Bacon version seems.

The symbol in the middle is likely a Gordian knot. Think of it as the symbol for Omnia. The R "O" S are sandwiched in between a more concealed C and S suggestion.

You' ll also notice the large stylized R before it to the left for RC.  The circular depiction what can be though of as the face of a compass or of a clock. The placement of the Ts in the text around it is not arbitrary. Two of them are opposite and on either end of a line going through the center. We can detect that a preferential spacing of letters is shown. The "crossing" of the Tees has something to say in this image, in my opinion.

The Turk's head knot is placed on the "king's spoke" to mark the top center spoke of the helm of a boat, the "steering wheel," in case it might be relevant. How about a pun, "the King spoke"? It is interesting because the knot itself is like a circle that you cannot see a beginning or end to it, in how it was made. The person who made the one on my boyfriend's boat told him, "I would like to make the Turk's Head knot on your boat. Maybe, when you look at it, you will think of me." And he does. I suppose it looks like a little turban like a sheik might wear. It is made of strong strands of string, all interwoven, and may last the life of the boat, or life of the helm--so far nearly forty years. A bit of poetic extrapolation. Was any of that in the mind of the person who made the symbol on the page you showed us? Who knows, but It seems apt, if so. What else is the Turk's Head Knot used for, I wonder, besides marking the "King's Spoke" on the helm of a boat?

Look closer: It's the "Double-A" headpiece!

I'm not seeing that suggestion in this case. You really have to think you are seeing it. RC is much more clearly given, though. What would AA signal to you here? Is it a link to Bacon or a link to Jewish cultural story? Are the two related?

I think it is not the same. The one below has the cross in the center.

Curious though, what is the knot that fits?

Hi Kate. I think your knot is as close as one can get to the engraving, which looks to me as if it has been "fudged" and doesn't link with the tails of the letters. The centre cross in the print has slipped down slightly, that's all. There are 8 spaces in both knots. I think the artist had your knot in mind but deviated to make it (sort of) connect to the two letters on either side.

After much reflection of all the excellent inputs, I have come to the conclusion that the design was meant to symbolize a clew.

It is placed between P (R) and S. Numerically P and S produce 33 as in Bacon.

But if we decide P is R then we derive the sum of 35.

As both numbers can be found, then we have a possible pseudo third: 33 = 35 = 68 = A Secret.

Actually, it's possible to derive both 33 and 34 from BACON, and, because 33 + 34 = 67 = Francis, the whole

famous name lies between two letters: P and S.
