Noble, useful.  Some volumes I have acquired in this manner include; 
"Fighting Infection, Conquests of the Twentieth Century" by Harry 
Dowling, Harvard University Press. 1977., "The History of Bacteriology" 
by William Bulloch, Dover Publications. 1938., "Civilization and Disease" 
by Henry Sigerist, University of Chicago Press. 1943. and "The Malaria 
Capers, Tales of Parasites and People" by Robert Desowitz, WW Norton, 
1991.  Another source I have found very useful for books on the history 
of microbiology are used book stores.  I have found several older but 
excellent volumes in this way, such as Zinnser's "Rats Lice and History", 
Theodor Rosebury's "Microbes and Morals" and the "Plague Killers" by 
Greer Williams.  Hope this helps.
