Appendices: Surreptitious ed. of "The paradoxes."--Various readings from "The remaines."--Other writings of Palmer.--Ralph Venning's "Paradoxes." "Here then we find a book passing current through two hundred and years of the most recent history, under the name of a renowned philosopher, popularly read, criticized by literary men, argued upon by metaphysicians and the chiefs of science throughout Europe, and regularly admitted as an important datum in the history of opinion; yet, all the while, this essay, which is not Bacon's at all, existed in numerous printed editions, with the name of the real author, Herbert Palmer ." - James Martineau; Seat of Authority in Religion (1890), page 178. In this work of literary detection, Grosart re-established Herbert Palmer as the author of The Christian Paradoxes, refuting the mis-attribution to Lord Bacon. ; Ex-Library; vi, 126, 2 ad pages.
