'It is the most complex collection of Herschels correspondence ever published. So it is a very interesting source for all readers wanting to know more on this man, his work, his time and all those people Herschel was in contact with.' Reviews of Astronomical Tools
' ... this impressive calendar is an essential resource for anyone studying the world of nineteenth-century Britain in general.' British Journal for the History of Science
This major new reference work provides for the first time summaries, descriptions, and documentation for 14,815 letters written by or sent to Sir John Herschel (1792-1871), one of the most prominent scientists of the nineteenth century. Because future research on Herschel will begin with this volume and because it gives scholars access to a wealth of information relevant to nineteenth-century science, it will be an important resource for all libraries serving scholars concerned with history of science, astronomy, British and South African history, and adjacent areas.
