There's a book by Dietrich Demus and Thomas Grass named "Bassetthorn" (in
German) which gives much more detailed information about teverything related
than any other book I know.
There is a new (2nd) edition out I got from them (Grass and Demus) in
Berlin.

Regards Georg

PS: I think Dan and Nick are right.
