Regarding the historical background of Corpus Linguistics,
this would be my top recommendation:
Francis, W.N. Language Corpora B.C. Paper Presented at the Nobel
Symposium on Corpus Linguistics, Stockholm, August 4-8, 1991.
In Directions in Corpus Linguistics, ed. J. Svartvik, Berlin and
New York: Moutin, 1992.
