Learn about Leeuwenhoek.
This is the web site of Brian J. Ford, the World's greatest authority on Leeuwenhoek's microscopes and specimens. Dr. Ford has written several books on his investigations into Leeuwenhoek's microscopes and on his discovery of the sample specimens Leeuwenhoek sent to the Royal Society of London, more than 300 years ago. This is an excellent website for those interested in Leeuwenhoek and the history of single lens microscopes.
