An extremely rare set at a great price. Francis Bacon is by far one of the most important individuals to have ever lived. He was highly regarded as a naturalist and statesman, and wrote extensively on the importance of expanding the sciences for a future world. He also wrote under cryptograms and ciphers and the hidden meanings in religion and mythology. He was a foundational figure in the development of Freemasonry, and was without a doubt a true cabalist. His essay The New Atlantis can be considered an allegory to the future world of America. N° de ref. de la librería
