For Sale: The Origins of Cyberspace

There’s a very interesting lot up for auction at Christie's in New York. Called "The Origins of Cyberspace" it includes mathematics papers from the 1600s, letters and first editions from Charles Babbage, journal articles by Alexander Graham Bell, and many many other fascinating, EXPENSIVE, documents and items from computing history. My favorite though, has to be a first edition of Karel Capek’s “R.U.R. Rossum’s Universal Robots” with an inscription to his mother in law on the inside cover.

Update:
Actually, this is pretty darn cool too.
