ADDENDUM #2, 10/4: A-HA! Confirmation that yes this does in fact exist in print. See Montse Stanley's Buttonhole Cast-On, p. 76, fig 2.37.
which made me curious about Montse Stanley and lead to yet another google search. I found a quick bio about her and the thing that caught my attention there was the existence of The Knitting Reference Library. The library was originally composed of three distinctive knitting collections: those of Montse Stanley, Richard Rutt and Jane Waller. The library appears to be split between two locations in England; the Winchester School of Art Library and the Hartley Library at the University of Southampton.
The only downside is that now I want to travel to England even more than I did previously.
