As editor of Philosophical Transactions, volumes 19 to 28 from 1695 to 1713, Sloane published 57 of Leeuwenhoek's letters, almost half his whole contribution to Philosophical Transactions. This was the most prolific period of Leeuwenhoek's scientific career. Sloane visited Leeuwenhoek in Delft in 1700. The portrait on the right was painted by Godfrey Kneller in 1716, when Sloane was 56 years old.
