The prime impetus for the spread of microscopy during the 18th century, this classic moves gracefully among its topics, including the structure of molds, visual apparatus of the fly, cellular structure of cork, and life cycle of the mosquito.

About the Author:

Robert Hooke (1635 – 1703) was an English natural philosopher, architect and polymath, best known for his discoveries and observations on biology. In his famous book, "Micrographia", he coined the word "cell" to name the smallest parts of any living organism, and inspired the use of microspcopes for scientific exploration. Based on his microscopic observations of fossils, Hooke was an early proponent of biological evolution.
