By 1644 the 26 letter alphabet was better established. But they would have known 177 was still important as well.

Great catch!!

I thought LUGD BATAVORUM seemed familiar to me.

I have this tiny book from 1648 in very good shape. I bought it almost 20 years ago from Abe books, don't remember what it costs. But it wasn't a lot.

Being in Latin I never really looked inside much. Of course checking page 157, 33, etc. But it doesn't appear to have been used much, pages crisp, so on. I just did a first time flip through to see if any notes were in it as I always look for notes.

I have no idea who owned this book or when these notes were added, and will say after owning this book for so many years and see this right now has my heart pumping. Not only are we discovering ciphers in the years after Bacon "passed", I have a book in possession with a cipher note I had no idea was there!

I LOVE this work!

William Brouncker, 2nd Viscount Brouncker, wiki:

William obtained a DM at the University of Oxford in 1647. Until 1660 he played no part in public life: being a staunch Royalist, he felt it best to live quietly and devote himself to his mathematical studies. He was one of the founders and the first President of the Royal Society.

He may have been too young for the 1641 engraving. But depending on his connections at the time, maybe. Imagine if an elderly Bacon had him as a student!

Sorry to sidetrack, but that 1648 book I have has one other note, the name "Tho. Molyneux."

image.thumb.png.e14b56e10dae982e0cad03bc3eb41d54.png

I found a signature from 1684 and the signature matches. Guess I have an autograph from the 1600's from Thomas Molyneux. Maybe he was the first owner of this book. (The cipher notes are pencil assuming much later).

Treasures to find by previous treasure hunters. Whoever wrote these notes had no idea who might ever see them.

Like this forum, we may touch people 100 years from now who are seeking and we left our notes...

THE TITLE PAGES OF THE 1641 AND 1644 LATIN EDITIONS OF BACON'S ESSAYS.

IT WILL BE NOTICED THAT IN THE 1641 EDITION THE FIGURE OF BACON APPEARS ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE PLATE AND IN THE 1644 EDITION THE PLATE IS PRINTED IN THE REVERSE WITH THE FIGURE OF BACON APPEARING ON THE LEFT SIDE.

Imagine having the opportunity to just peruse that library. I searched microfiche at USF years ago and thought that was amazing and very cool. But to touch and flip through pages of antiquities, I cannot even dream of that. A wealth of discoveries, never before even considered. Just imagine! So much behind the veil! Purposely left for us, yet nobody has been passionate enough to seek!

The names of we who have looked in the past couple hundred years is not a long list. The immense volume of clues are barely scratched. Hopefully they do not disappear before found.

Even yesterday smelling the pungent odor of a 1653 book, possibly with pollen and mold from hundreds of years ago made me excited.

Hope we do not leave COVID for the next centuries...

Nemesis, and Albrecht again. 🙂

Wiki https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nemesis:

Etymology

The name Nemesis is related to the Greek word νέμειν némein, meaning "to give what is due",[3] from Proto-Indo-European nem- "distribute".[4]

Not the first time today that word popped up. 😉

So beautiful. We are giving Bacon his due.

Mona Lisa has nothing on "Nemesis".

Look at her face, the expression. The hair. Paying back what is due. She is confident, pleased, and 100% secure in her actions. Amazing image!

This is Women's History Month in America (New Atlantis).

I love her. So does Bacon. 🙂

So here it is Lvg Batavor not Lugd Batavorum.
 

What exactly do all these various ways of saying this mean on these books? I went looking and found this (see link) and I’ve never seen so many ways of saying the same thing. It’s curious 

https://data.cerl.org/thesaurus/cnl00031387

 

Does it just mean all the books were printed in Leiden? Is Leiden in anyway connected to Lede of Lede and the Swan? In the link you can see how many variations there are on the spelling of that word too 🤔

 

Does anyone know?

Hi Kate ! Here is the information given by wikipedia :

"Leiden was formed on an artificial hill (today called the Burcht van Leiden) at the confluence of the rivers
Oude and Nieuwe Rijn (Old and New Rhine). In the oldest reference to this, from circa 860, the settlement
was called Leithon. The name is said to be from Germanic leitha- "canal" in dative pluralis, thus meaning 
"at the canals". "Canal" is actually not the completely proper word. A leitha (later "lede") was a 
human-modified natural river, partly natural, partly artificial."

By the way, I discovered the interesting work of Lucas van Leyden , a contemporary of ... Albrecht Dürer ! 🙂
