I've sold or donated some of my older books that were getting to be in rough shape...
My treasure book is Issei Yoshino's "Super Complex Origami," and next to it is the old Origami Maple edition of his "Skeleton of Tyrannosaurus Rex."
and I've also got OUSA Conventions '91, '94, '95, '96, and '05, and "Folding Money, volume 2" by Samuel Randlett.

It is hard for me to keep track of what books are in and out of print, but here are a few.
OUSA collections 1988-2010 (I haven't ordered this year's yet.)
Super Complex Origami
Skeleton of T-Rex (also the maple edition)
Fuse's Mask book
Four of Shuzo Fujimoto's books
Passion Origami
Inochi Yutaka na Origami (Origami Full of Life) by Akira Yoshizawa (not sure how hard that one is to find)
Sosaku Origami (Creative Origami) by Yoshizawa (not sure if it is in print or not, it's never been printed in English that I know of)

For me it is not a matter of trying to collect rare books, it is just a natural side effect of trying to collect as may good origami books as I can so that I can fold just about anything someone requests. Eventually some books will go out of print and become harder to find, but that is not my criteria for getting/keeping a book.

I didn't realize that Brilliant and Selected Works of Elias were candidates, so add those to my list...

This is how things should look...
