The Herschel Chronicle : The Life-Story of William Herschel and his Sister Caroline Herschel Paperback / softback
Edited by Constance A. Lubbock
Originally published in 1933, this book was written with the aim of presenting the life stories of William and Caroline Herschel in the setting of their family circle and the broader historical context.
The text is composed, as far as possible, from their own words, using extracts from William Herschel's brief autobiographical notes and from Caroline's very full journals, as well as from letters.
A variety of illustrative figures and an appendix section are also included.
This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in the Herschels, astronomy and music.
