Google turns up a few things for me:

There's a nearly complete scan of a 1936 primer online here[1], if you
can read Chinese (which I can't, so I can't really say how useful it's
likely to be).

There's an equivalence chart here [2].

On the subject of Pinyin origins, this[3] might be interesting,
although the tone is somewhat combative.  You're better equipped than
myself to judge its accuracy.
