This books could be a good source book for steampunk. It is about different attempts in the past to create mechanical humans, such as some of Vaucansons automatons. It also has some stuff on Edison, how he had only just invented the recording cylinders when he decided to put them into dolls to create talking dolls. Didn´t go too well though. But it´s an interesting read and you can probably find it as a cheap paperback somewhere.
