Two books that I can recommend are:

     The Albumen & Salted Paper Book  The History and Practice Of 
Photographic Printing 1840 - 1895
     by James M. Reilly  Published by Light Impressions, 1980

I believe this is considered to be the definitive modern work on the 
subject but is out of print and may be harder to find.  I was able to 
have my local library get it for me from a university library.


     The Book of Alternative Photographic Processes
     by Christopher James  I have the second edition published by Delmar 
Cengage Learning, 2009

This book is in print.  I got mine just last month from Amazon.  Used 
copies of the first addition are readily available.  I haven't seen the 
first edition but expect the information on this process hasn't changed 
much if at all.  James has a large section on Salted Paper printing.  
The Reilly book has more of the history but both books are excellent 
sources for technical information.

Liam Lawless has an interesting article over at Unblinking Eye 
http://unblinkingeye.com/Articles/POP/pop.html  Ed Buffuloe who owns the 
site also has his own article on the subject
