Instauratio Magna by Francis Bacon, translated by William Wood
Notice regarding Part I

——————————————————

The First Part of the Instauration,

which comprehends

the Division of the Sciences,

is wanting.

But they can be

partly taken

from the Second Book,

“On the Progress to be made

in Divine and

Human Learning.”

——————————————————

Next followeth the Second Part

of the Instauration,

which exhibits the Art of

interpreting Nature and of making a right Use

of the Understanding; not, however,

imbodied in a regular Treatise,

but only summarily

digested in

Aphorisms.
