Works in the area of science are becoming increasingly rare and so command strong prices at auction. Many esoteric subjects fall under this category: Witchcraft, Freemasonry, Astrology, Kabbalah, and Animal Magnetism. From books on the history of Computers and Computing to the earliest books on rhinoplasty and collections on obstetrics, dentistry, psychiatry and astronomy to rare engineering related items such as periodicals, journals, reference works and folders of ephemera.

Books on Natural History are frequently a reminder of our rich environment and its entire species.
