Highy recommded Repository containing a ton of old animation photography:

(seems like the forum doesn't like the URL, so copy-paste)

Can be used as helper background images in animation works.

I am still searching for his more human-themed series (while the above link has lots of animals like horses, elephant, ape etc.)

You can get the books from Amazon or similar. They're a good reference!

There's even an edition with the (animated I assume) images on a CD or DVD.
