Sir Tobie Matthew


Sir Tobie Matthew, writing to his friend Francis Bacon in 1618, states :

"The most prodigious wit that ever I knew of my nation, and of this side of the sea, is of your Lordhip's name, though he be known by another."

This can only mean that Bacon had been writing works in the name of someone else, so the question arises where are these works written by Bacon and published in the name of some other man?
