The closest thing I know of is Ron Dethlefson's companion book to "Edison Blue Amberol recordings" in which are reprinted a number of Blue Amberol record slips.  Information truly worth having access to.

I asked a good friend who is heavy into Edison material and here is his response.
Dear Mr. Bardenwerper,

Just received this inquiry from my friend. I only know of Mr. Charles Gregory's work (Books) on the Edison Paper Labels and Discography. He has issued in 2003 a near complete depiction of the Popular series (50001-52651) record labels. If you don't have them, he still has copies for sale. This set does not - to my finding - contain any of the liner notes from the record jackets, but has the catalogue and monthly supplements with written descriptions. Do these mirror what was put on the actual record jackets? I don't know. He also is still collecting and has issued an addendum for this series as well, which I have not purchased. He is also still working on the Light Classical - Classical and Operatic series of labels, which I believe is going to have the jacket liner notes included, because I know he wants to include the first jacket liner notes which were put on the first DDiscs which came in presentation boxes. I cannot say if they are going to include any of the popular series. I know I probably have a 100 or so myself and have sent him a couple which he needed. You may want to inquire directly with him at;  cgregory200 at comcast.net

Leave me know how you make out.

Best Regards!

Kirk Bauer
