The First Folio-- Francis Bacon's "Book of Riddles"?

This is an alignment of the word “Michaelmas” on p. 40 of The Merry Wives of Windsor and p. 56 of The First Part of King Henry the Fourth. (As far as I can tell, these are the only two appearances of the word “Michaelmas” in the First Folio.)


The letters spelling FRANCIS BACON appear near the words "I'le be sworn upon all the Books of Songs and Sonnets heere...the book of Riddles."
