Incipit:Of the Parents and Birth of Fryer Bacon, and how he addicted himselfe to Learning.
He was borne by most mens opinions in the West part of England, & was sonne to a wealthy Farmer, who put him to Schoole to the Parson of the Towne where hee was borne: not with intent that he should turne Fryer (as he did) but to get so much understanding, that he might manage the better that wealth hee was to leave him…
Explicit:… His time he spent in Prayer, Meditation, and such Divine exercises, and did seeke by all meanes to perswade men from the studie of Magicke.
Thus lived hee some two yeares space in that Cell, never comming forth; His meate and drinke he received in at a Window, and at that window he did discourse with those that came to him: his grave he digged with his owne nayles, and was laid there when he died. Thus was the Life and Death of this famous Fryer, who lived most part of his life a Magician, and dyed a true penitent Sinner, and an Anchorite.
