1687 - de Blois portrait of Leeuwenhoek

Abraham de Blois

Portrait of Antony van Leeuwenhoek by Abraham de Blois (Delft 1655 - Amsterdam 1717) in (probably) 1686, at age 54, copperplate engraving.

It first appeared in 1687 as the frontispiece to the Vervolg der Brieven.

Dobell p. 349 calls this portrait "derived" from Verkolje's oil painting.
