A classic puzzle book, Sam Loyd's Cyclopedia of 5000 Puzzles, Tricks, and Conundrums (1914), sometimes called the Cyclopedia of Puzzles, has been scanned and is now online at http://www.mathpuzzle.com/loyd/.

You can view individual pages, or download a zipped file of the entire book. Note that, although Stanford University Libraries and Academic Resources (SULAIR) does not own a print copy of this book, there are a number of puzzle books in the Mathematical and Computer Science Library's collection.
