A great essay, thanks so much! When I think of the hassles we used to go through as grad students getting the med students to produce and find gram stained bacteria on modern microscopes, under ideal conditions, it floors me to think of the details Leeuwenhoek was able to perceive with homemade equipment. I'm equally impressed that Cagnard-Latour was able to discern bud scars!
