by Brian Warner and John Rourke. Sir John Herschel (1792-1871) - son of Sir William Herschel, the discoverer of the planet Uranus – is recognized as one of Britain’s great nineteenth-century scientists. He visited the Cape from 1834 to 1838 to survey the southern skies, and became fascinated by the beauty and diversity of Cape Flora. This book reproduces these paintings, with other unpublished works by artists such as Charles Davidson Bell and Thomas Bowler, and is a celebration of the abundant beauty the Herschel’s found on the doorstep of Feldhausen, their home at the Cape.

Sir John Herschel, one of the founders of Southern Hemisphere astronomy, was .

Sir John Herschel, one of the founders of Southern Hemisphere astronomy, was a man of extraordinarily wide interests. He made contributions to botany, geology, and ornithology, as well as to astronomy, chemistry, and mathematics. The diaries from 1834 to 1838, years he spent making astronomical observations at the Cape of Good Hope, are reproduced in this book and prove to be much more than an ordinary scientist’s logbook. Sir John devoted his working time at the Cape primarily to a systematic observation of the southern sky, complementing his earlier sweeping of the northern sky at Slough, England.
