Just as churches often keep a bit of bone or tooth from a saint, so too do aficionados of the history of science like to keep track of relics of great thinkers. For instance, in the 1700s an Italian noble family got hold of a couple of fingers and a tooth of Galileo. These bits of bone vanished from the records around 1905, but recently reappeared at auction. Meanwhile, Christie's will be auctioning off a rare first edition of On the Origin of Species, which had spent decades in a British family's bathroom.
