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.

H. G. B.

London, Nov. 1852.
