Not so much a cartography thing, but the British Library now has many famous works including the Lindisfarne Gospels, Alice in Wonderland (pre-print version), Leonardo DaVinci's notebook (excerpt only), and many other famous works online. They have been scanned and produced in Flash so that you actually do turn the pages of these books.

It has a magnifier so that you can examine each page, and an audio recording reads or explains each document. Very nicely done.
