Sometimes the top of the A's curve inward, sometimes outward.

This is an image from the 1609 Sonnets previously posted on anther thread, but the graphic is still up on my PC. It is not double A's like some others, but it is a subtle Double A.

Allisnum2er posted a version where the peaks go outward:

Both pop up.

My belief is the Double A's are one way of saying, "157 and 287".

"A" row G is 157 and L is 287. Two A's, and very important ones on many levels.

Double A's - 157 and 287.

Hi Rob ! Thank you for sharing this with us.

It is fascinating how all is interconnected.

Facing your table with  the 2 A , the L and the G, I immediatly thought of the AGLA.

The AGLA is a secret society that was created by Cornelius AGRIPPA in 1509, in Lyon (Lugdunum 😉 ), Cornelius Agrippa whose  book "De occulta philosophia libri tres" was a major influence on John Dee.

https://books.google.fr/books?id=ku3DHWvg4hwC&pg=PA37&lpg=PA37&dq=AGLA+the+angelic+agrippa&source=bl&ots=fPv6FsrWUO&sig=ACfU3U1Tw4ReLDijLFTx7nzxguBh3Erm3g&hl=fr&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjswZrXktT2AhVJzhoKHTpZB_IQ6AF6BAgaEAM#v=onepage&q=AGLA the angelic agrippa&f=false

And look in the following link :

The mediaval silver cross looks like the jewel on the Hat of our "Ape" in the emblem  of George Wither !

The rest of it is in the link but it explains the two different footers on the Sonnets and the differences inside the book - which are quite substantial.

Thanks Kate! I need to look at this. I wonder if both versions are online. Could be...

It would be a new circle, angles would change. I may look at it and see what I see.

Alan Green, brilliant guy. He knows mathematics better than me. The triangles he found in the circle he used, connecting to the spots on the page, using the horizontal lines! Then describing the angles and how some had been named over the centuries due to their properties. Incredible work! Way beyond what I can do.

Some of his opinions beyond the math I had some hesitancy to 100% accept. I enjoyed the connection to the Egyptian Pyramids. I know Dee traveled and many of Bacon's friends as well. Dee was a cartographer and may have been able to do the math to find the angles. It is highly possible. There were other mathematicians, but I believe Dee was "da Man" when it came to math and maps at his time. 

Are the ancient Pyramids in Green's circle? Could be, I do believe that. I'd not say that I'd believe it 100%, but intrigued.

The right angle, the one that Green using the very outside of a larger spot to align, came up with the formula suggested they were leaving the "Speed of light" with us. I saw another simpler triangle that I have used before and could use the middle of the spots. I used it when arranging the spots in the Sonnets Dedication. It is a very simple right triangle where the 90 degree lines A and B are 4 and 7.

That said, Alan Green is a genius, has an earned PHD. He is no joke, a serious public figure in the Authorship world. He obviously has money behind him for video production, event management, social media and web marketing, etc. I believe it is Oxie money, as some his later work was pretty fluffy focusing on De Vere. His calendar concept made no impression on me. I am certain he knew it would be embarrassing for him among his peers and he was paid to do it. 😉

I'm attaching a PDF that I made for him and made several attempts to send him "fan" email sharing what I saw as well. Several email attempts, using a paid professional email server to have confidence every message gets though, but never received. Even with email addresses from people who knew him, no delivery. As if he has his email closed to maybe a few whitelisted friends. (I understand, but can't do that or wouldn't right now when someone might  want to know more or share what they know.)

My email was much longer than the content on the PDF, but was what I thought he might enjoy seeing whether or not he responded. 🙂

First line of the play, "now is the winter of discontent"

I've been hearing it all my life, one of the most famous of all Shakespeare lines.

I see "con" first (discontent), always a "con" anywhere important.

I can make out a few connections with "b" and "a" letters on the page in the area. Easy enough.

But the upside down Double A's? That in itself may hold a message we have not figured out yet. I'm thinking on it.

Sacred Geometry? This might be a fruitful place to look. That line did "last", it is because there was some oooomph from something we do not understand in this "modern" age. 😉

If nothing else, it is a major in our face booboo that the printer would not make. You can bet they printed at least one copy and checked it before they went into production.

And one of the most famous lines ever that Shakespeare wrote. Until tonight I did not even realize where it came from. LOL

Hi A.Phoenix !

Once again, thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to have a look on this pieces of History.

You did a great job on the analysis of the Title page !

 

I noticed two more things that I think you would find interesting ! 🙂 503690252_YorkeHouse.thumb.png.1c786d1a021261de7dbb29550f9c1538.png

Please note that I am not totally sure about the italic letters, because of the image definition.

But it seems that there is an italic letter t in the margin.

If we do not take this t in count, then :

A(1)+I(9)+I(9)+W(21)+I(9)+I(9) = 58

The simple cipher of JOHN DEE.

The "De furtivis"  cipher of  BACON.

Hi Yann, if there exists some kind of cryptic clue, acrostic or anagram, etc, revealing links to the Great One I always expect you will eke them out! Thank You. 

You're welcome ! It is my pleasure to help, in my way, to claim truth about the Great One from the shadows of the past ! 😊

I came across this earlier today by Peter Dawkins about the letter L, and LL:

https://www.fbrt.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/The_Stratford_Shakespeare_Monument.pdf

"The number 50 also has a highly significant meaning in the cabalistic cipher system, being rendered by the letter L in the Roman numeral system and used, for instance, in the Shakespeare play, Love’s Labour’s lost, to convey the idea of truth, which is Love’s Labour or love in action (i.e. charity), as represented by the number 100 (LL), the cabalistic number of God, the Author of All. The number 50 is the number of the Argonauts, a metaphor for those seekers after truth who seek (and find) the golden fleece of enlightenment."

On another note, curious coincidence that THOMAS CREEDE is 111 Simple cipher, and CREEDE is 39 Simple and 111 Reverse cipher. His name comes up in relation to Bacon's "The tvvoo bookes of Francis Bacon. Of the proficience and aduancement of learning, diuine and humane. - At London : Printed [by Thomas Purfoot and Thomas Creede] for Henrie Tomes, and are to be sould at his shop at Graies Inne gate in Holborne, 1605"

Mather Walker mentions him several times in this article on the subject of the Double A's:

https://sirbacon.org/mcompeer3of3.htm

Thomas Creede's mark (below) appears on several Shakespeare plays as well as other works. Mather Walker associates his work with Freemasonry.

I've been searching the internet for a better image of the 1632 "To the memory..." page.

So far every 1632 Second Folio has this image:

image.thumb.png.1eb77b4fe08f1fac74fa1c4858076d48.png

No Double A. Different words.

https://digital.lib.miamioh.edu/digital/collection/wshakespeare/id/11666

I'm still looking, but am a few pages into search results and I am pretty good at doing searches.

A. Phoenix, can you offer some clues on where this one comes up? A rare or obscure version? Is there an online version? I'd like to see what I can find as far as any potential cipher clues. 😉
