Talk:Instauratio Magna/Proem (Spedding)
Reference source: The Works of Francis Bacon, ed. by Spedding, Ellis and Heath, vol. 4 (London: Longmans, 1870).
For the text, I took the Americanized version at http://ebooks.adelaide.edu.au/b/bacon/francis/instauration/, and proofed it against Elibron's photographic reprint of the 1870 London edition. Punctuation was returned to match the English version. --Mccaskey 22:06, 21 March 2008 (UTC)
