Volume XI of The Oxford Francis Bacon comprises the first new critical edition of Bacon's most important philosophical work, the Novum Organum, for a hundred years. One of the foundation documents of early-modern philosophy, Novum Organum is edited in accordance with modern textual-critical principles for the first time. Graham Rees presents the only edition ever to include the original Latin text with a brand new, facing-page translation, and a thorough Introduction and detailed commentary of the text. The edition represents a major step towards the reinstatement of Bacon as a central figure in the history of early-modern philosophy, and will be essential reading for anyone studying the history of science and ideas in the seventeenth-century.

The work has been printed with care and it is a handsome and dignified-looking hardback. Daniel Spelda, Acta Comeniana extremely useful both for the specialist reader and for the beginning student of Baconian thought. Silvia Manzo, Cambridge University Press Rees's translation of Novum organum supplies a long-felt need for a scholarly edition of this work ... meticulous attention to detail, judicious scholarship, humor, and a deep understanding of the richness and complexity of Bacon's natural philosophy. Sophie Weeks, Sixteenth Century Journal
