John Frederick William Herschel (1792-1871) was an English mathematician, astronomer, chemist and experimental photographer. He named seven moons of Saturn and four moons of Uranus, and originated the use of the Julian day system in astronomy. His work "Outlines of Astronomy" was an enormous success and became the standard text book on astronomy during the second half of the 19th century. Alexander Wylie (1815-87) was a British missionary who arrived at Shanghai in 1847 where he became in charge of the printing press. He published many scholarly works and translations during his time in China.
