As editor of Philosophical Transactions, volumes 19 to 28 from 1695 to 1713, Sloane published 69 of Leeuwenhoek's letters, more than half of his whole contribution to Philosophical Transactions. This was the most prolific period of Leeuwenhoek's scientific career. The portrait on the right was painted by Godfrey Kneller in 1716, when Sloane was 56 years old.
