Bacon might have crossed paths, for example, with Jacques Peletier , whose texts were manifestoes of the practical uses of mathematics, or the chirurgien du roy Ambroise Parè , the jurist Jean Bodin , the architect Androuet du Cerceau or the engraver René Boyvin , as well as other savants such as François Beroald , Jacques Gohory and Jacques Besson .
