As was common in those days, Hendrik de Leth had many trades. In addition to being an engraver, he was a printmaker, etcher, mapmaker, draughtsman, bookseller, art dealer, publisher and he collected art and naturalies.

He learned the trade of engraver and publisher from his father Andries de Leth (1662-1731). Andries took over the Amsterdam printing house after the death of the widow of Nicolaes Visscher II (a famous publisher and printer’s family of nearly a century) in 1726. He died five years later and Hendrik continued and expanded the printing business.
