Francis Bacon’s Essays

Fine Bindings

View this post on Instagram

An #artsandcrafts feel to this pleasant #leatherbinding of Francis Bacon's Essays. Bacon considered his essays something of a diversion but the first edition of 1597, containing only 10, was sufficiently popular to be expanded to 38 essays in 1612 and then again to 58 in 1625. It's not hard to see why. Bacon's essays are scholarly yet eminently readable. Topics range from revenge to prophecies to regimens of health and are blessed with an enduring turn of phrase. This 1900 edition by Arthur Humphreys is somewhat charming, see more here: http://www.aj-scruffles.co.uk/books/?b=001014 #books #rarebooks #bookstagram #antiques #antiquebooks #antiquarianbooks #booksofinstagram #booklover #booklovers #reading #bookish #bookaddict #bibliophile #igbooks #booknerd #francisbacon #philosophy #finebinding #leatherbooks
