About this Item: J. Johnson, London, 1803. Large octavo, 10 volumes. Bound in full contemporary calf. Gilt titles and tooling to the spine, edges speckled. Frontispiece of Francis Bacon in volume one. With the early armorial bookplate of J. Lawson Whalley and the modern bookplate of Elmer Holmes Bopst, namesake of New York University's Bopst Library. In very good condition. I have taken all knowledge to be my province, Bacon declared He held to his course, if not beyond the utmost bound of human thought, at least to the uttermost edge discernible in his day and that, too, in every department of intellectual activity. Bacon s day was, perhaps, the latest moment in history when anything like omniscience was within the limits of human attainment; even in his day, Bacon s was, perhaps, the only mind that could achieve it" (Winterich, 205-6).
