The University of Tsukuba Digital Collections - Rare Books site has an assortment of esoteric works in a variety of formats of differing quality. They include Japanese scrolls, maps, images of prominent western figures and a bunch of others.

The highlight for me were the Left Series and Right Series of hawk images above. There's no information at all about them but they appear to have been etched, burnt and painted (yeah, I'm guessing) on articulating panel books. The universalflash interface is excellent and you can zoom in very close (closer than depicted here) with amazing clarity.
