Sylva Sylvarum: A Natural History, in Ten Centuries.

 

A collection of Francis Bacon’s 17th Century natural medicine and philosophy published in 1627, Sylva Sylvarum details the scientist’s experimental observations. The collection includes New Atlantis: Bacon’s interpretation of a future for human discovery and knowledge which is likened to the discovery of America.

 

Francis Bacon’s reputation as an English philosopher, scientist, and author lent credit to his extreme influence during the scientific revolution and Voltaire introduced him as the “father of the scientific method.” Bacon laid the framework for the works of many notable scientists and philosophers to follow.

 

The Sylva Sylvarum reproduction offers Francis Bacon’s great works printed in English to be contemplated and studied. Sturdily bound in genuine leather and printed in the highest quality, this reproduction can be passed down for generations and will be a welcomed addition to any true book collector's library.

 

To “The Most High and Mighty Prince Charls,” Sylva Sylvarum is dedicated to the former King of Great Britain, France, and Ireland. We gladly make the collection available to the masses for $199.99
