History: "Sylva Sylvarum: A Natural History, in Ten Centuries," is a collection of Francis Bacon’s 17th Century natural medicine and philosophy, published in 1627. Sylva Sylvarum details the scientist’s experimental observations. The collection includes "New Atlantis," Bacon’s interpretation of a future for human discovery, and knowledge, which is likened to the discovery of America. Francis Bacon’s reputation as an English philosopher, scientist, and author lent credit to his extreme influence during the scientific revolution, and Voltaire introduced him as the “father of the scientific method.” Bacon laid the framework for the works of many notable scientists and philosophers to follow.

The Sylva Sylvarum reproduction offers Francis Bacon’s great works printed in English to be contemplated and studied. Sturdily bound in genuine leather and printed in the highest quality, this reproduction can be passed down for generations, and will be a welcomed addition to any true book collector's library.

Reproduction Details: The hardcover books are made with two pieces of real wood on the inside. The leather is a 4 oz cowhide, from a small supplier in New York state. The Glue we use to attach the leather to the wood is made at our facility, and is a period correct wheat glue. Along the spine, we use a modern perfect binding, with modern glue, to make the binding last longer. We also add three layers of mull cloth to the outside of the perfect binding, drying in between each layer, which is a traditional way to make the binding stiff, strong, and resilient.
