Science, they say, is the new rock and roll and this week a London sale offers 300 highly-collectable lots spanning millennia.
It kicks off sedately with that favourite 18th century boys’ toy, the telescope.
Highlights in a good selection is a fine Georgian three-inch reflecting shagreen and lacquered brass example (stg£4,000-stg£6,000).The sale then moves on to eye wear and ephemera, philosophical models and instruments, globes and planetaria.
