The United Nations education agency coordinated libraries from a dozen countries to put some of their ancient works into digital format for use online. The World Digital Library has documents, files and more in seven different languages. You can view maps of the New World from 1562, or a map of Ancient Arabia from Christoph Weigel from 1654. The library also contains audio tracks, video and photographs.
