Hi A P.

Fascinating woman. Her autobiography, "Shadows Like Myself" contains this portrait of her by French artist, Rene Gilbert. 

ScreenShot2024-01-10at8_41_25pm.png.d0410c3518e2c7a1129cb69dff78292a.png

She was buried in the Revolutionary Cemetery (Picpus) in Paris, beside her husband who was a descendent of Lafayette.

Hi Eric, 

I have two works in front of me:

1] Ronald B. McKerrow, Printers & Publishers' Devices in England & Scotland 1485-1640 (London: printed for The Bibliographical Society at the Chiswick Press, 1913)

2] R. B. McKerrow  and F. S. Ferguson, Title-page Borders used in England & Scotland 1485-1640 (London: printed for The Bibliographical Society at the Oxford University Press, 1932 (for 1931)).

These two standard works are referred to by Joachim Gerstenberg in Strange Signatures Shakespeare And The Bacony Head-piece (The Francis Bacon Society, 1967), pp. 15, 32:    

The [Archer] headpieces appears on four important pages of the First Folio [and] in the Second Folio of 1632...

A very remarkable fact must now be recorded: the total absence of this title border [i.e. the Arch Headpiece] or any part of it in the standard work on Title-borders of R. B. McKerrow and F. S. Ferguson. More astonishing still, our device, whether in the form of it first appearance or in its later use in a form which it is suggested shall in future be called the bay-cony headpiece, cannot be found either in R. B. McKerrow's work Printers & Publishers' Devices in England and Scotland 1485-1640.

This taciturnity is particularly remarkable and unpardonable in the highest degree in the case of Mr. R. B. McKerrow, who was an eminent expert, indeed the highest authority on the subject of pictorial matter in books published between 1550 and 1650....To believe in such a fundamental oversight is equivalent to believing in the possibility of a normally educated man writing a book about Egypt and being totally ignorant of the presence there of pyramids or of a great river called the Nile. 

 

 

 

Hi A P.

Managed to find the first reference work you mentioned: https://archive.org/details/b24749722/page/n369/mode/2up?view=theater Fantastic b&w facsimiles of hundreds of printers' devices, but no AA headpieces. The second reference text is seemingly much rarer. I gave up looking. Someone definitely needs to do an academic study of prominent headpieces published during the late-Elizabethan/early-Jacobean period.

Wow! This book made my heart sing! 😍 What a find.

At least we now know that the initials are RS on the emblem and not PS and it means Richard Smith. I recall we had a long convo about it maybe meaning something to do with Rosicrucian.

More coincidences. Before even reading this I saw and saved a book on Renaissance Headpieces on Pinterest. I didn’t share it as it’s very, very light print (ink) but I’ll go and look again and link to it here.

Here is page 33. It is actually billed as  Ornamental Details of the Italian Renaissance.  I haven't fully looked through it yet but it looked interesting at first glance. https://archive.org/details/ornamentaldetail00blakuoft Reanissanceheadpieces.png.debb8ce6a633705dc6f6f367a3abd66e.png

This one is a bit 'raw' but is from the 15th century.

Hi All, 

The British Library catalogue and other services will hopefully be back up and running next week, so you can be sure we'll be having a look for the 'Skipwith Holinshed'.

Hacker's are a serious threat to Knowledge and Truth.

In Bacon's time the idea was to hide and keep secrets Sealed until the right moment. Today, there could be highly educated crazily financed malicious thieves or immature high school kids playing around who are stealing everything from identity information to State secrets.

OK, who hacked bl.uk which is in my important research link tools?

Was it a foreign entity seeking national security information? Ummm, I suppose it could be.

Was it a gang of online children hanging out in hacker clubs just competing on who can destroy the most and best websites and annoy everyone on Earth the most? More likely, but I am not sold on that idea.

Being the year 2023 when the First Folio 400 year anniversary took place, after A. Phoenix "spilled the Bacon", so to speak, who and why would anyone want to take Shakespeare and Bacon resources on the British Library website down?

I say number One is the Stratfordian monument built of money and power, crumbling as it is. And my guess is they have a lot of influence with The British Library. They would not have to "hack" the site, they'd merely have to make a few suggestions or threats and the entire online public library would be easily turned off. As a techie who spends way too much time fighting all kinds of hackers, my guess is the bl.uk IT and Web team unchecked "Public" on their data after a weird and intense meeting back in October. Yet, those with credentials still have full access.

If the British Library wanted to be back online to the public in 5 days, I am sure they have the money and resources to make that happen. I will tell you SirBacon.org would be back up in 24 hours even without money because we care.

Number Two would be Oxies. But as beautiful and extravagant their productions and appearances are, I'd put teenage kids in NYC as number Two. They have tools that scrape the internet, and if the bl.uk wesbite has a dinosaur upper management making decisions, online security may not have been in the plan and wide open to any basic hacker. UGH

Numbers Three through a Hundred could be anybody, Oxies included. Disgruntled ex-employees are way up on the list!

I don't anticipate this valuable resource to be back up until after Bacon's birthday coming up. I hope I am wrong! 🙂

Greetings LOT

You say "Today, there could be highly educated crazily financed malicious thieves or immature high school kids playing around who are stealing everything from identity information to State secrets. "

And you may well be correct, but don't you think it's all an inevitable effect of human Nature? Bring back the Modem and message board is what I say.

Hey I was one of first to have a 256 bit modem in 1995 or so. 128 was soooooo slow. Images on a website had to be 16 bit gifs under 64K for a normal web page download. LOL

Alt this and Alt that boards, majordomo email lists were the thing. I used to get a psychic client's website to number one on Altavista making changes to his content and would see the results live. Only Jeane Dixon had a web person as good as me and into the wee hours we'd trade places from the top one and two results. This was before there was a Google. 😉

But no way, don't make me go back to those days. The key now is secure passwords you do not share, text message codes to log into important websites, check your bank and credit card accounts daily, and never click a link that is not one you asked for. 😉

Human nature? I don't know. Animal nature, yea I get it. Animals will steal and do worse, primal instinct I guess. Prey on the weak. I try to be more human, I am not a thief. My time is often spent protecting websites from thieves. Technology is never evil by its nature. It can be a savior. But who drives the technology is an issue.

AI? I am optimistic, but that is my nature. 🙂

I know we all are familiar with the modern handwriting and layout that represents the Northumberland Manuscript. I took it to be the original until I learned otherwise. I think most people would as well. Se see Bacon and Shakespeare, etc.

But the original is a real treasure! I just came across this high-res copy I have never seen so close before:

https://shakespearedocumented.folger.edu/file/details/410

image.png.4587592815dec5a74adb1f2db379d6f1.png

I did a little Photoshop adjustment for me to see better.

What do you think, was it Lady Anne Bacon that taught Bacon to make those cool designs to practice penmanship? We know Willy couldn't even think of attempting that level of pen skill! LOL

For those like me that need visuals, think about the skill and practice it would take to dip your feather into ink and make a scroll perfectly like this:

Bacon-scroll.gif.4114dbbf0817b7e02a8f96a823c483e7.gif

I did a Google image search on this design and basically nothing comes up but the two references we are discussing with Shakespeare's Holinshed and the Northumberland Manuscripts. I would say they appear to be from the same practiced hand.
