Can anyone point me towards a good resource for learning more about Poul la Cour's work on wind turbines? Or other historic wind turbine work?

I'm having trouble trying to find papers or resources online, but I think I might just be googling the wrong things. I'd like a textbook recommendation, or a good review paper or website.
Specifically, I'd like to know more about the maths behind the aerodynamics stuff that la Cour did, or the electrolysis-based hydrogen storage system that he used.
Additionally, any resources about early wind turbines would be really really useful.
Ideally I'd like to be able to go through the derivations myself and fully understand them.
