4.1 The Works of Francis Bacon: Latin and English, ed. with introduction and commentaries by J. Spedding, R.L. Ellis and D.D. Heath (first published London, 1857-74; reprinted Stuttgart-Bad Cannstatt, Friedrich Frommann, 1961-3). The philosophical works are in vols 1-5; De Sapientia Veterum, mistakenly considered as a literary work, is in vol. 6 with the Essays. The remaining volumes (7-14) are devoted to the literary and professional works, letters and life. This is the standard edition and, although there is an American counterpart (Boston, 1860-4), its pagination is generally used.
