Illustration sources

Are there any good sources to get illustrations from to put into an ebook that you would like to convert? I would definitely like to be able to add in illustrations from the original book, or as close as possible to the original published date, but since I do not have the original, I cannot scan them in myself.

you might check on the internet archive ; sometimes they have full scans including the illustrations.

Google Books is another good source of page scans.

I like the Internet Archive better, because you can get the raw scans at high resolution and in a picture format (not inside a PDF), and work from them.

Internet archive is great, when its search engine is working. I find that, more often than not, if I try to use it during a weekday, the search engine is broken.

I haven't had any problems so far with searching in Internet Archive; but would site searches from Google be an alternative?

e.g.
site:www.archive.org "charles dickens" "text"

I found this the other day while I was searching Google Images.

Don't know how searchable it is, but it's awesome to browse.

EDIT: It's not just comics, not by a long shot.

EDIT2: Check this out, for instance.

Yeah, I hope someone makes an Alice in Wonderland after seeing that link.

Found this too...

... and thought I should document it.

Sci-Fi-O-Rama.

If you like sci-fi, it seems a great resource.
