Not a book, but a nice (abbreviated) story on Gerard Herrick's Convertaplane designs (including HV-3 and HC-6D artwork) is published in the Vertiflite Summer 2008 magazine, written by Bruce Charnov. Btw, the complete paper was presented at the AHS Forum 63.

My dear Boxkite,

I think that is the Herrick HC-6D of 1948.
