208 pp, 8vo (8 3/8" H), hard cover in dust jacket. "Perhaps no man was ever greater or weaker than Sir Francis Bacon. On the one hand he was a brilliant writer, an original thinker, a stateman, a sage, philosopher, and scholar who sought to catalo gue all the knowledge on the earth; while on the other hand, he was a sychophant, a treacherous friend; a cringing enemy, a time-serving opportunist, luxurious, vain, mercenary, a spendthrift, and if not a thief then a man inexcusably carel e s s i n m o ney matters. Always he was trying to serve two masters; whether they were the Earl of Essex and his own cousin, Lord Robert Cecil, the Earl's chief political foe; or Essex and the Queen....a fascinating and entirely modern biography o f th e m an wh o won the ignominy and contumely of his contemporaries and immortal fame in future generations."
