Sean,

A quick look in the new tRNA book from ASM (full reference below) indicates
that the relative levels of most tRNA species have been measured in E. coli,
with similar (but less complete) evaluations for Salmonella typhimurium. The
article includes a table for E. coli which is more recent than the 1981
references... 

H. Inokuchi and F. Yamao, "Structure and expression of prokaryotic tRNA 
genes." Chapter 3 (pp. 17-30) In D. Söll and U.L. RajBhandary, eds. (1995)
tRNA: Structure, Biosynthesis, and Function. ASM Press, Washington, D.C.
ISBN 1-55581-073-X

Hope this helps.
Cheers, GUY
