I have a few physics textbooks from circa 1900, just before the explosion of modern physics. They're out of date not just scientifically, but pedagogically: It's a wonder anyone was able to learn anything from them. I also have my grandfather's copy of the "rubber bible", the CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics, which I think was from some time in the 1920s.
