The University of South Carolina has started scanning its rare collections and, wow, there are some mindblowing finds. Finds like this WWI sketchbook by Cpl. Douglas G. Ward, a British soldier with a brush and quite a wonderful sense of humor and history. It starts in '15 and takes us around the world through war until it's over in '18. (Also be sure to enter the vortex that is the South Carolina Digital Library. So incredible).
An amazing update from a reader!: It is possible that the Irvin Department of Rare Books and Special Collections at the University of South Carolina would be willing to produce prints of some of these items. You can contact them through their webpage: http://library.sc.edu/spcoll/rarebook.html. Asking to speak, or leave a message for, Elizabeth Sudduth would probably get the quickest results. Thanks for the publicity, Hollister! I have worked for the Rare Books Dept., but am now an archivist for the South Caroliniana Library (http://library.sc.edu/socar/), which also has some great holdings.
