Although not specifically a protein chemistry book, an excellent reference
for EDC couplings along with several other methods is "Antibodies: A
Laboratory Manual" by Harlow and Lane (published by Cold Spring Harbor, 1988,
ISBN 0-87969-314-2, see pages 84-85).  This is overall a very good book on
all aspects of antibody generation, characterization, and purification.  The
protocols in this book are precise and easy to follow.
I hope this helps.  Actually you should be able to find a mountain of journal
reference for using EDC with medline and most protein modification text or
immunology lab guides (v.s.) have this information.
