CONTRIBUTORS TO THE SPECIAL BACONIANA COMMEMORATING THE 1623 SHAKESPEARE FIRST FOLIO

ROB FOWLER

From an early age Treasure Hunting has been in the blood of Baconian Rob Fowler growing up with his parents in the wide-open public lands of Colorado wandering around the vast expanses of wilderness collecting crystals, agates, petrified wood and dinosaur bones, and any other treasure he came across. Thereafter the noble pursuit of all kinds of tangible and spiritual treasures, akin to his own personal Baconian journey of the advancement of knowledge and enlightenment, has proved the guiding light of his life.

With divine synchronicity this all crystallized after he attended a gathering at a beautiful home in California in late 1996 where he noticed a striking portrait in the hallway of the house which immediately arrested his attention. He asked someone about the “Shakespeare” portrait, and they said “Oh, you need to ask Lawrence about that. It is not Shakespeare; it is Francis Bacon.” He was subsequently introduced to Lawrence Gerald, who provided him with a two-hour introduction on all things Francis Bacon, was handed a stack of Xeroxed pages from Alfred Dodd, Peter Dawkins, et al, and various articles from Baconiana many of them based on his curiosity about ciphers.

SirBacon.org was not then a reality but it soon would be when it was launched by Lawrence in October 1997 from which time it has grown into the largest Baconian website in the world. This eventually gave birth on 31 January 2022 to the B’Hive Forum, a platform created by Rob (in conjunction with Lawrence) who by profession is a techno expert, which in next to no time has already become the most visited Baconian Forum around the Globe.    

By his own account, learning about Francis Bacon is the biggest treasure he ever stumbled upon. His dear friend Lawrence satisfied his insatiable desire to learn all he could about Lord Bacon with Baconian articles and artwork. Early in his Baconian passion Peter Dawkins set him on a Baconian “treasure hunt” and to this day it is still the all-consuming passion of his life.

Rob wants to thank Lawrence Gerald and Peter Dawkins for sharing the Keys when he was ready 25 years ago. Also A. Phoenix for rising from the Baconian ashes and doing all of the critically important research and Baconian work that they do today. Special thanks and recognition to Yann Le Merlus who has taken most of the weight off Rob’s shoulders as he was worried he was sadly one of the last Baconian Treasure Hunters. Rob wants to thank all of our amazing Sirbacon.org B’Hive members, The Francis Bacon Society, and all Baconians past, present, and future who work so hard to bring Bacon’s Truth to Light!

Hi Rob - have you considered hypnotism as a profession? I'm getting mesmerised by your penetrating gaze.

where is this page 99 from?

I'm Google searching, "THE NEW BOOK OF CONSTITUTIONS OF THE ANTIENT AND HONOURABLE FRATERNITY" from 1733 and it does not seem this book is scanned yet for online.

I might not even be searching the right book...

EDIT:

The page 99 is not from 1733. Look at the two versions of an "s". This is contemporary to Bacon's or very close to his accepted life span.

Page 99 is from the 1738 edition of the Constitutions-see title page above.

My bad. I left out the all important V when Googling DCCXXXIII. LOL

Even with 1738 I am not seeing anything online. You must have access to the original print version.

Pages 33, 100, 157, and 287 if the book is long enough? Page 53??

🙂

There must be a cipher on this page. Red letters are a hint.

For a start, two T's framing F BACON. It's not even hidden, like jumping out to get attention. LOL

There is a full basket of goodies here. "CONSTITUTION", "CONTAINING", and visual clues that Yann teaches us! 🙂

EDIT:

The fancy lettered word, "Antient"?

There is no better story to tell. Bacon's life has so many levels, it will touch everyone. We think Shakespeare made a difference, "Spearshaker" will make even a bigger impact.

If our society is still thriving in 400 years, Spearshaker will be celebrated as much as Shakespeare. And the world will know Bacon.

I can't imagine anybody but Disney taking this on. And they need it right now! 🙂

ERIC ROBERTS

A potted bibliography of online resources relating to the First Folio engraving  by Martin Droeshout

By Eric Roberts

'What did Shakespeare look like? Like so many other questions about the life of our greatest literary artist, the answer is “we don’t know.”  And like so many of these answers, that they don’t know what he looked like isn’t just an interesting footnote, it’s a major anomaly.  When we have good oil portraits for four of the five poets who accompanied Shakespeare into literary glory, playwrights Ben Jonson and Christopher Marlowe, poets Philip Sidney and Sir Walter Raleigh, why not their master?  

Visualizing Shakespeare: A Tale of Two Portraits http://www.politicworm.com/oxford-shakespeare/expanding-the-question/vizualizing-shakespeare-a-tale-of-two-portraits/

Everyone knows what Shakespeare looked like, in terms of popular culture. Droeshout’s engraving has been reproduced ad nauseum, endlessly referenced by illustrators, parodied by caricaturists, even pushed to the limits of abstraction by Pablo Picasso in his Portraits Imaginaires - Shakespeare Series. But no matter how much we distort the face on the First Folio’s title-page, it remains instantly recognisable as William Shakespeare – so indelibly has this 400 year-old pictographic meme been etched into our subconscious psyches. Globally, it signifies the face of the author of the Shakespeare plays. In today’s mass media marketplace, Droeshout’s ubiquitous engraving functions as a non-controversial, benign symbol of supreme literary prowess and theatrical achievement.   

image.png.96c1f8af67618a7fee93606026a77211.png

Yet, beneath the surface of popular culture an old, unresolved conflict has been smoldering for at least the last two hundred years. An on-going debate among the engraving’s defenders and its detractors has generated a considerable body of literature that reflects the diversity of opinion surrounding the iconic, controversial image on the title-page of the First Folio.

This selective survey of available online reference texts relating to the First Folio title-page by Martin Droeshout is by no means complete, nor is it conclusive as to whether or not the figure in the engraving is Shakespeare. The aim is to assist interested casual readers and academic researchers wanting to reach their own informed conclusion as to whether or not the Droeshout portrait of Shakespeare is an authentic likeness of the world’s most celebrated literary figure.'

ROB FOWLER

Sonnets Pyramid Design By Rob Fowler

'I’m honored to be in this 400 Year Anniversary edition of Baconiana. What a thrill, even a dream come true for me for over 25 years. I am here to share something I knew was going to turn the world upside down on October 14, 2003. Yet I’m not sure I made a ripple at all after 20 years.

Reading now what I wrote below attempting to proofread or fix it as much as possible, I am laughing at myself for being as confusing and scattered as every other attempt I have made to share the same concepts! What is funny is the Sonnets Pyramid design is actually very simple, but I make it sound like a complicated puzzle that nobody can even attempt!

Disclaimer: Sometimes I write with conviction of what I have seen and believe to be Truth. I do have an abundance of conviction, yet I speak with authority when I should not. I will happily back up anything I claim with numerous references in the Sonnets, the First Folio, in Bacon’s works, and in number and cipher connections. But to this day much of what I believe and say is still a theory; Francis Bacon was born to the Virgin Queen Elizabeth as William Tudor, and later he was known as William Shakespeare. Bacon was supposed to be King of England, and the Sonnets tell his story with so much detail and emotion.

Enjoy.

TThy guift,,thy tables,are within my braine
Full characterd with lasting memory,
Which shall aboue that idle rancke remaine
Beyond all date euen to eternity.

Here is a visual of these first four lines of Sonnet 122 in the original 1609 facsimile:

https://internetshakespeare.uvic.ca/Library/facsimile/book/UC_Q1_Son/51/

image.png.0f69dd35416af5a7aae5469776d5292c.png

The double T typo (TThy guift,,thy tables) begins Day 287 of the Sonnets Pyramid design after passing beyond Tier 11. Everybody knows that, right? Of course, they do. I’ve been describing this online for 20 years as of October 14 (Day 287) of this year, 2023. Dozens of people have read about it by now! LOL'
