Science For Sale At Christie's

Have a hankering for scientific volumes that changed the world?  Then get your molecules over to Christie's New York next Tuesday and break out your bankbook.  First editions of the Origin of Species, a 1543 volume by Copernicus (estimate: $900,000 to $1.2 million), Galileo as well as works by Descartes, Newton, Freud, Kepler, Tycho Brahe, Malthus and even Karl Marx all from the collection of physician and amateur astronomer Robert Green.

And yes, you can also pick up the first telephone directory.
