(...) The first edition of The microscope made easy appeared in 1742; it ran to five editions in Baker's lifetime and was translated into several foreign languages. (...) Henry Baker was in many respects a typical natural philosopher of the eighteenth century. His interest ranged widely, and his skills were equally various: he was by no means dedicated to one branch of study, nor did he do research in modern sense. Yet he deserved the title "a philosopher in little things"; and he had the rare gift of communicating his knowledge of, and above all his enthusiasm for, the microscope to others. (...) He regarded the microscope with reverence, as a means to the deeper appreciation of the wonders of God's world."
