Epact – Scientific Instruments of Medieval and Renaissance Europe.
This is a really beautiful site if you are interested in the history of astronomical instruments, combining the collections from four major European museums. You can search by keyword for astrolabes, armillary spheres and equatoria and find excellent high-definition pictures which show the instruments in superb detail. There are also explanations of how the instruments worked and detailed notes with each exhibit.
A site (by Michael Oates) devoted to information about historical figures in astronomy that could not be found else where on the internet.
This site contains much material by and about naturalist and social critic Wallace (1823-1913), including bibliographies, news items, commentaries, FAQs, a capsule biography, lists (e.g., of all the personal names that appear in his voluminous publications), and the full-text of about 200 of his writings (including several books) and interviews. It should be noted that although Wallace is best known for his work on natural selection and biogeography, he is slowly becoming recognized as one of the founding fathers of astrobiology studies, and as an early proponent of the anthropic principle.
