"A new book of cyphers" (http://www.archive.org/details/newbookofcyphers00symp) - published 1726 (contains over 600 illustrations)

Monograms & ciphers ([1906]) (http://www.archive.org/details/monogramsciphers00turbuoft) 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) (http://www.archive.org/details/bookofornamental00delarich)
A very cool old book which contains official alphabets of different monarchys through the ages.
