To quickly assess the difficulty of the text, read a short excerpt:
"That the pretended succession of wits hath been evil placed, forasmuch as after variety of sects and opinions the most popular andnot the truest prevaileth and weareth out the rest; being the sixthchapter. " 11. "Of the impediments of knowledge in handling it by parts, and inslipping off particular sciences from the root and stock of universalknowledge; being the seventh chapter. " 12. "That the end and scope of knowledge hath been generally mistaken, and that men were never well advised what ...it was they sought" (partof a chapter not numbered). 13. "An abridgment of divers chapters of the first book;" namely, thel2th, 13th, and 14th, (over which is a running title "Of activeknowledge;") and (without any running title) the 15th, 16th, 17th, 18th], 19th, 21st, 22nd, 25th, and 26th. These abridgments have noheadings; and at the end is written, "The end of the Abridgment ofthe first book of the Interpretation of Nature. " Such was the arrangement of the manuscript as the transcriber left it;which I have thought worth preserving, because I seem to see tracesin it of two separate stages in the developement of the work; theorder of the chapters as they are transcribed being probably the samein which Bacon wrote them; and the numbers inserted at the end of theheadings indicating the order in which, when he placed them in thetranscriber's hands, it was his intention to arrange them; andbecause it proves at any rate that at that time the design of thewhole book was clearly laid out in his mind.
