History of Medicine
Robert Hooke (1635-1703) was the great pioneer, but he was not alone. There had been a few who attempted what Hooke would famously accomplish, and many others who would follow, expanding and refining what Hooke had done by reading the tracts he left for them. Henry Power published before Hooke, but Power's book has only a few crude woodcuts. William Derham edited some of Hooke's works posthumously, including illustrations never before published.
Henry Baker drew precise plans for building microscopes that clearly used Hooke's instrument as their inspiration. He published them in The Microscope Made Easy, London . See the LocatorPlus catalog record
