AORD BACON, in the midst of his

laborious' occupations, published, in

the year 1605, his celebrated work

2 The Advancement of Learning, which professes to be a survey of the then existing Knowledge, with a designation of the parts of Science which were unexplored; the cultivated parts of the intellectual World and the desarts; a finished picture with an outline of what was untouched.

Within the outline is included the whole of Science. After having examined the objections to Learning ; — the advantages of Learning; — the places of learning or Universities ; — the books of Learning or Libraries, the shrines where all the relics of the ancient Saints, full of true Virtue, and that without delusion or imposture, are preserved and reposed ; after having thus cleared the way, and, as it were, made silence to have the true nature of Learning better heard and understood, he investi-. eges, all Knowledge: bost. Relating to the Memory, or History.

2nd. Relating to the Imagination, or Poetry.
