29) The number 259 (“Shakespeare” in Kay alphabet) is found in another significant location. This is in the “Baconiana” published by Archbishop Thomas Tenison in 1679. The full title was “Baconiana Or Certain Genuine Remains of Francis Bacon, Baron of Verulam, and Viscount of St. Albans”. Like other significant numbers that repeatedly show up in some suggestive way to Francis Bacon, this one is easily overlooked because most readers take in appearances without question. In this instance on page 258 of this book is a reproduction of the Epitaph from Bacon’s Monument in St. Michael’s Church. The epitaph is in Latin, begins with “Franciscus Bacon,” and runs to the bottom of the page.
