Turning the Pages is a great collection digitized books, at the British Library, that allow you to turn the pages and almost experience the real thing. The works included in this project include some very old books, such as the first atlas of Europe, Blake’s notebooks, sketches by Leonardo DaVinci, and the original Alice in Wonderland, among others. To actually see the books you will need Shockwave, but the site also has static, annotated, images of the same works that include audio.
