This very rare old book contains the first compilation, or complete works, of Francis Bacon, Imperator
of the Rosicrucian Order in England and probable author of the works attributed William Shakespeare.
Written completely in Latin as that was the learned language of the time, it has within its pages
and specifically in the work titled "The New Atlantis", references to Rosicrucian works of centuries past.
The New Atlantis expounds on the principle of a utopian society and through the use of symbols reveals
that Bacon was referring to a school, or a community, of Rosicrucians.
