Welcome to Sir Hans Sloane's Correspondence Online

Sir Hans Sloane's Correspondence Online provides access to the letters of Sir Hans Sloane (1660-1753), famous physician, scientist and collector. Sloane's letters cover a wide range of topics, such as science, travel, collecting and medicine.

When the project was first launched, only letter summaries for Sloane MSS 4037-4040 and 4075 were available. We are now all the way up to MS 4045 (and halfway through MS 4046) – and will keep adding more summaries of letters from the remaining volumes. The site also highlights random letters.

You can also follow the project's blog: The Sloane Letters Blog (www.sloaneletters.com).
