Making Stars Physical : The Astronomy of Sir John Herschel

"A meticulously researched and lucidly presented examination of Sir John Herschel's astronomical and physical science. What comes across so impressively in the book is Herschel's deeply pragmatic approach to cosmology. . . . Stephen Case has produced a rich and fascinating book. I warmly recommend it, as a major contribution to astronomical history and to Herschel studies in particular."
