The present volume contains all the historical works of Lord Bacon, and the principal of his moral works; only a few antiquated pieces being omitted, which are no longer read. A companion volume is in immediate preparation (for the Scientific Library), comprising a complete translation of the nine books of De Augmentis Scientiarum, not hitherto given in any
edition of his works, and the Novum Organum ; both fully illustrated with note:s. If these two volumes meet with that success to which their contents entitle them, it is proposed to collect the remaining portions of Lord Bacon's Philosophical and Miscellaneous works into a third volume, that the series may embrace all the writings of that philosopher which have outlived modern discovery, and are likely continuously to interest the attention of mankind.
