"Art Monograms and Lettering"
Must have book download (drawing Acanthus leaves)
Here's a few more books that WVEngraver found... (thank you again Chris!)
"A new book of cyphers" - published 1726 (contains over 600 illustrations)
Monograms & ciphers ([1906]) I was delighted to see that this book contains examples of corporate monograms and the use of the "ampersand" in monograms.
The book of ornamental alphabets, ancient and mediaeval, from the eighth century. (published 1914)
A very cool old book which contains official alphabets of different monarchys through the ages.

The JM Berglin Art monograms and lettering book published in 1908 and revised 5th edition in 1912 dates has expired the 85 year copyright length.  Google has scanned it and may be downloaded as a pdf at this link.

The below two images are from the JM Berglin Art monograms and lettering page 88.
