Richard Anthony Proctor
An air of mystery surrounds his researches, lying, as they do, chiefly in depths to which the far-seeing eye of the telescope alone penetrates.

As an astronomer in the true sense of the term, Sir John Herschel stood before all his contemporaries. Nay, he stood almost alone.
The whole system has been long since swept away, and its records merely remain as illustrations of perverted ingenuity.
