The new edition is reset for the convenience of the modern reader, but there are no changes except the modernization of spelling and punctuation.

Certain errors in pagination may be intentional and pages in which these occur are reproduced in facsimile.
Tenison, Archbishop of Canterbury, notes that this book is "a great and hardy venture to finish after Lord Verulam's pencil." Sir Edwin During-Lawrence considers this book the most significant of Utopian publications. The volume also contains a poem by George Herbert honoring Lord Bacon. For this publication, Manly P. Hall has provided an introduction suggesting the scope of the work.
