These equations are famous for their being in a group. They are based on single equations done by other people over the previous several decades.
When Maxwell died he left notes on hundreds of pages of paper. Heaviside and others went through the notes and did the posthumous publishing for Maxwell.
The original equations were about 25 in number and contained false ones and duplicates in different forms. We really owe it to Heaviside for our current state of E&M but he has gotten less discussion over the past 50 years.
