Special Bacon-Shakespeare Title Pages & Emblems

This one is harder ! 

I just noticed a difference between the word "BRITTANNICA" on the left, and "BRITANNICA" on the right.

BRITANNICA = 100 = FRANCIS BACON (Simple Cipher)

BRITTANNICA = 119 = MEDIOCRIA FIRMA (Simple Cipher)

For me to catch up, I needed to know what this book is. I see:

https://www.invaluable.com/auction-lot/joseph-hall-mundus-alter-et-idem-third-edition-ut-39-c-f6d491f8ae

Lot 39: Joseph Hall, Mundus Alter et idem, third edition, Utrecht 1643. Hall's work is the earliest utopia set in Terra Australis and provided Swift for many ideas for 'Gullivery's Travels'.

Interesting this image of the book that was for sale has B, A, and C underlined. A past cipher enthusiast owned this book? 😉

Quick cipher thing...

FRANC. BACONIS is 100 Simple, 200 Reverse, 55 Short, and 282 Kaye.

FRANCIS BACON is the same, but is the exact same letters of the above.

Until tonight I never knew that FRANCIS BACON is 287 Kaye using the 26 letter codes. Wow, how did I miss that??

MERCVRIO BRITANNICO is 100 Short cipher using the same codes.

Authore MERCVRIO BRITANNICO = Author FRANCIS BACON.

But we already know that, right? Kind of. Did Bacon write this?

What about this:

CIVITAS SOLIS = 157 Simple and 287 Kaye using the same 26 letter codes.

If this was Bacon in 1643, he appears to be emphasizing the 26 letter ciphers. 🙂

EDIT:

I just read this.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mundus_Alter_et_Idem

Bacon did write it. 😉

"Although the text credits "Mercurius Britannicus" as the author, Thomas Hyde ascribed it to Hall in 1674."

And...

"It was not clearly ascribed to Hall by name until 1674, when Thomas Hyde, the librarian of the Bodleian, identified "Mercurius Britannicus" with Joseph Hall, as is now accepted.[6] Hall's authorship had been an open secret, however, and in 1642 John Milton used it to attack him during the Smectymnuus controversy, employing the argument that the work lacked the constructive approach taken in More's Utopia and Bacon's New Atlantis.[7]"

This book sounds like a riot!

https://www.hup.harvard.edu/catalog.php?isbn=9780674284852

"The Antarctic Continent was inhabited, it seems, in the days of Queen Elizabeth by four main peoples, the crapulous folk of Tenter-belly, the vira-goes of Shee-landt, the morons of Fooliana, and the pirates and highwaymen of Theevingen. The author of this voyage pretends to have visited all these places, and records his impressions with the circumstantial pen of a journalist, and with an energy and relish barely surpassed by Rabelais himself. The result is unique, for it is the only authentic legend of the Antarctic, and yet it is also a fantasy, a burlesque, a satire, and an encyclopedia of learning, all in one salvo. The editor’s devoted but unobtrusive labors have made this first modern edition of an excessively rare text definitive, and it goes forth with the enthusiastic endorsement of the great explorer to whose achievement it is dedicated as a fitting token of homage."

A. Phoenix, I bet you know something you have not shared yet. You posted the images, but you have already dug into it more than I have. Can you tell?? If not, we understand. 🙂

Three words on the diagonal end in is starting at Civitas Solis. Any meaning in that? Isis?

Kate ,you were right ! 🙂 

The 3 words  SOLIS , ATLANTIS and BACONIS were clues in order to find the fourth (hidden) one : LAPIS

The '1609' edition of Shakespeares Sonnets included another Shakespeare poem A Lover's Complaint written in rhyme royal the same metre as the Shakespeare narrative poem The Rape of Lucrece. The first two lines of The Rape of Lucrece are headed by a very large F and two large capitals letters R and B which stand for Fr[ancis] B[acon]. In the edition of Shakespeares Sonnets the first sonnet begins with a large capital F and R (and following the indentation) a capital B thus we have again the letters for Fr[ancis] B[acon].  Now if we take a look at the first stanza of A Lover's Complaint it begins with the capital letters FRA and down below it the letters which make up MY NAME and from the b in the third line reading upwards Bacon thus it reads MY NAME IS FRA [NCIS] BACON.  

Arden, 'Acrostics and Quibbles', Baconiana, No. 159, December 1958, p. 105.

Hi, A Phoenix !

image.png.9a3b16f0604dd47aa2fa4940ab1b40f2.png

I think that there is another reference to his name a few lines later : f. bacon

But must of all, there is the beautiful OWL , a reference to his muse Pallas Athena ! 🙂 

Edit : And with the S of "Some beauty" we have SOW once again !

Some beauty...

Oft did she ...

Which on it ...

Hi, everyone !

Here some additionnal thoughts :

MERCURIO + BACONIS =  157 🙂  (157 = FRA ROSIE CROSS)

LAPIS = 57 (Simple cipher 26 letters) = FRA. BACON (Simple cipher 24 letters)

LAPIS = 106 (Kay Cipher) a reference to Father R.C.

Regards.

Hi A Phoenix !

The two last verses of the poem are : " He (The Man)  is like a Torch which is exposed to the storm which nourishes it, consumes it and extinguishes it.

It can be seen as a reference to the Salamander and the motto of Francis I, King  of France  : "Nutrisco et extinguo". 🙂
