1813 - Chapman portrait of Leeuwenhoek

J. Chapman

Portrait of Antony van Leeuwenhoek by J. Chapman, 1813, steel engraving.

Dobell p. 350 calls it a copy of A. Smith's portrait, who copied the one that A. de Blois made, presumably from life. It first appeared in one of the Dutch editions of the letters that Leeuwenhoek published himself in 1687, when he was 55 years old.
