Sir John Frederick William Herschel (1792-1871)
This image, of John FW Herschel as an eminent grey haired Victorian (he would have been in his 70s), was originally produced as the frontispiece to John FW Herschel's Catalogue of nebulae and clusters of stars (1864), an updated version of his father's work, with plates by M. & N. Hanhart. The image was subsequently used (in 1882) by the journal, the Quarterly Journal of Science No. 19. The Quarterly Journal of Science, later simply the Journal of Science was an academic journal produced in Edinburgh and edited first by J. Samuelson and later (including issue No. 19) by W. Crooke.
