"The Secret, Hidden, and Obscured, Relationship Between FB and the Jaggards, Printers and Publisher of his Essays and the Shakespeare First Folio. " by A. Phoenix.
For the last four centuries the authoritative Bacon and Shakespeare editors and biographers have systematically suppressed the truth about the relationship between Francis Bacon and the Jaggards, printers and publishers of his Essays and the First Folio of the Shakespeare works. It surely does not need to be said that if somebody is suppressing the full facts and truth from us, and in this instance the rest of the world also, that they are concealing and hiding something. And if we just consider for a single moment the all-encompassing lengths required for this kind of concealment one which has been very carefully maintained over a period of four hundred years, it follows that the commensurate enormity and implications of the secret must be of monumental proportions. A secret is always bound up in its concealment. Thus if what is being withheld from us is the secret relationship between Francis Bacon and the Jaggards the printers and publishers of the Shakespeare First Folio, it is likely to be (and in this case is) that the Folio was printed and published for Francis Bacon by the Jaggards, with whom, which is here revealed for the first time, he had a hidden and obscured relationship over a period of some four decades.
In the second half of the twentieth century the American scholar Charlton Hinman subjected the printing of the First Folio to a forensic technical study in The Printing and Proof-Reading of the First Folio of Shakespeare (Oxford Clarendon Press) based on an investigation of some eighty copies in the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington. Like most large standard works it remains largely unread from cover to cover and some of its contents remain effectively hidden and unknown to the world. In this work he draws attention to a unique copy of the Shakespeare First Folio with a unique upside down 'B' on the first page of the first play The Tempest as well as a defective 'S' of 'Actus primus, Scena prima' and the mis-signed signature 'B' at the bottom of the page: about which he says Baconians will perhaps find meanings in the broken 'S' and in the two 'B's 'that invite such particular attention in the earliest state of page A1.)'. Yet remarkably Professor Hinman does not directly say or explain what meaning Baconians might find in these peculiarities, which is also revealed here for the first time.
The upside down positioning of the ornamental letter 'B' is unique to one copy of the Folio, however the same ornamental 'B' appears in all other copies but the correct way round. If the large ornamental B is magnified it reveals the name Francis Bacon hidden in the decorative scroll with the name Francis across the top and at the bottom and the name Bacon down the right side. This explosive and decisive evidence completely demolishes the illusion William Shakspere was responsible for the Shakespeare works, a fiction first presented to the world nearly four hundred years ago with the publication of the First Folio, printed in the Jaggard printing shop by William and Isaac Jaggard in 1623.

"Francis Bacon, the God-Like Rosicrucian figure of Duke Vincentio, and the Unpublished Speeches of Lord Keeper Sir Nicholas Bacon in Measure for Measure." by A. Phoenix.
One of the less familiar dramas in the Shakespeare canon Measure for Measure has at its heart the God-like Rosicrucian figure of Duke Vincentio one akin to Prospero in The Tempest described by Dr Yates as a Rosicrucian manifesto. The role of the Duke is one of the longest roles in the Shakespeare canon. He is seen by many Shakespeare scholars as a surrogate of the dramatist himself with the joint Arden editors of Measure for Measure correctly maintaining that its author ‘sets up the correspondences between himself and the duke…extensively’, and that, Measure for Measure ‘persistently hints that the Duke is a playwright made in Shakespeare’s image’. Or put another way the secretive, complex and enigmatic character of Duke Vincentio, who adopts multiple masks, disguises and identities in Measure for Measure represents Shakespeare, that is to say, the true author of the play, who himself outside of the play itself, also adopts multiple identities and disguises behind his various literary living masks including the pseudonym of Shakespeare. The Duke is a complex dramatic portrait of his creator Francis Bacon, the supreme head of the Rosicrucian-Freemasonry Brotherhood, with the Duke in the play watching over Vienna just like Bacon, reflected in his Rosicrucian utopia New Atlantis, watches over the world and the future of mankind. In the play the Duke seeks to build a new, fair, and just society one based upon love just as Bacon with his Rosicrucian Brotherhood set in motion a plan for A Universal Reformation of the Whole World.The intertwined themes of law and justice, sex and death, and the Rosicrucian-Freemasonry Brotherhood that are threaded all the way through Measure for Measure are mirrored and reflected in more than twenty of Bacon’s acknowledged writings and works, among them: unpublished manuscripts, private letters and speeches; his Meditationes Sacrae , Of Colours of Good and Evil, various essays including Of Judicature, Of Seditions and Troubles, and Of Death, one of the central themes of the play; as well as An Inquiry Concerning the Ways of Death and The History of Life and Death; the Gesta Grayorum and other dramatic devices; religious and political tracts including A Confession of Faith and A Brief Discourse Touching the Happy Union of the Kingdom of England and Scotland; his major philosophical and scientific treatises The Advancement of Learning, Novum Organum and De Augmentis Scientiarum ; and several of his obscure or relatively unknown and unread legal treatises A Proclamation Touching the Marches, The Charge of Owen Indicted for High Treason, A Proposition Touching the Compiling and Amendments of Law, and Touching the Office of Constable; as well as his Rosicrucian utopia New Atlantis (or, The Land of the Rosicrucians) and the first Rosicrucian manifesto the Fama Fraternitatis.

"FRANCIS BACON AND HIS EARLIEST SHAKESPEARE PLAY HAMLET A TUDOR FAMILY TRAGEDY" by A. Phoenix.
The Tragedy of Hamlet shadows the most explosive and sensational secrets of the Elizabethan reign in which the not so Virgin Queen Elizabeth was secretly married to Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester with whom she had two concealed royal princes Francis Tudor Bacon and Robert Tudor Devereux. It tells the tale of its author a disinherited royal prince Francis Tudor Bacon in the shape of Hamlet who is denied his rightful kingship by his mother Queen Elizabeth and the exhaustion and death of the royal Tudor dynasty.
Behind its dramatis personae lies the leading figures of the Elizabethan period: Francis Bacon Tudor concealed Prince of Wales (Prince Hamlet), Queen Elizabeth Tudor (Queen Gertrude) and her secret husband Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester (King Claudius), Robert Tudor Devereux, the second Earl of Essex (Laertes), Sir Nicholas Bacon (the Ghost of Old Hamlet) and Sir William Cecil (Polonius).
It is a story of a lustful Queen Elizabeth and the notorious poisoner and murderer Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester and the strange death possibly through poisoning by Leicester of Sir Nicholas Bacon. It is a play that is all about revenge, murder and death, with poisonings of Old Hamlet, King Claudius, Queen Gertrude, Laertes and Hamlet himself, and by other means, the deaths of Polonius, Ophelia, and the two state spies, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern.
Interspersed throughout the whole of the dissertation of the telling of this royal Tudor tragedy are lines, sentences and passages identical in thought and similar in expression, providing resemblances, correspondences and parallels from more than thirty of Bacon’s writings and works, among them: unpublished manuscripts, private letters and speeches; various essays including Of Revenge and Of Death, the two central themes of the play; as well as An Inquiry Concerning the Ways of Death and The History of Life and Death; short occasional pieces Physiological Remains and Short Notes for Civil Conversation; political works A Brief Discourse Touching the Happy Union of the Kingdom of England and Scotland and The Case of the Post-Nati of Scotland as well as the state sanctioned A Declaration of the Practices and Treasons of the Earl of Essex; his major philosophical and scientific treatises The Advancement of Learning, The Wisdom of the Ancients, Novum Organum, De Augmentis Scientiarum and Sylva Sylvarum; and several of his obscure or relatively unknown and unread legal treatises A Discourse upon the Commission of Bridewell, The Argument in Lowe’s Case of Tenures, The Charge of Owen Indicted for High Treason, The Reading Upon the Statues of Uses, The Maxims of the Common Law and The Ordinances made by Lord Chancellor Bacon in Chancery.This and other evidence emphatically demonstrates beyond any reasonable doubt Francis Bacon’s authorship of the earliest and greatest Shakespeare Tudor Tragedy in the history of world literature.

"Francis Bacon's Unrecognised Cambridge Manuscript and The Taming of The Shrew" by A. Phoenix.
This academic research paper reveals for the first time an unrecognised Francis Bacon philosophical-scientific manuscript entitled Giardino Cosmografico Cultivato (Cultivated Cosmographical Garden) prefaced by Greek and Latin poems from Lady Anne Cooke Bacon and her three sisters Lady Mildred Cooke Cecil, Lady Elizabeth Cooke Hoby and Lady Katherine Cooke Killigrew. The unique manuscript (Cambridge University MS Li.537) presented as being the work of one Dr Bartholo Sylva (who is not known to have written any other work during his lifetime) is copied out in the fine Italic hand of the Bacon family calligraphist and illuminator Petruccio Ubaldini. This little known figure who spent much time with the Bacon family at Gorhambury and York House and had a long hitherto hidden and obscured relationship with Francis Bacon for more than thirty years is here established for the first time as the model for Petruccio in The Taming of the Shrew. In the play Petruccio pursues Katherine who shares the same Christian name of Bacon's aunt Katherine Cooke Killigrew, younger sister of Lady Anne Cooke Bacon. In The Taming of the Shrew Katherine has a sister named Bianca from which can be derived the anagrammatic contraction AN BAC that clearly suggests the name Anne Bacon. In the play while able to choose from a countless number of names our supreme poet and dramatist gives Petrucci's father the name Antonio, the Italian form of the Christian name of Anthony Bacon. He also furnishes Petruccio with several servants who are met with after his marriage to Katherine at his country house two of whom are named Nicholas and Nathaniel the same Christian names of his two elder half-brothers (from Lord Keeper Nicholas Bacon's first marriage) Sir Nicholas and Sir Nathaniel Bacon. Thus hidden in plain sight the controversial comedy The Taming of the Shrew seen for what it is, was a Bacon family affair, a humorous send-up written by the supreme family poet, Francis Bacon.

Francis Bacon's authorship of the play Like Will to Like written when he was only seven years old
A. Phoenix reveals here for the first time in this academic research paper and accompanying video that Francis Bacon wrote the play Like Will to Like when he was seven years old. This morality play is about good and evil and its central character is Newfangle the Vice. The dichotomy of good and evil or the colours of good and evil was later written large across the much more expansive canvass of his Shakespeare poems and plays and as pointed out by orthodox editors and scholars the figure of the Vice is refracted through various Shakespeare villains and characters i.e. Lucrece, Aaron the Moor in Titus Andronicus, Richard III, Don John in Much Ado About Nothing, Iago in Othello, etc, etc. And remarkably In the closing song of Twelfth Night or What You Will Bacon obliquely reveals that when he was a young boy he wrote the morality play Like Will to Like (see pp. 104-7)
