I'm not sure this is a information what you need or not.

I know one paper on PDB format definition.

F.C.Bernstein, T.F.Koetzie, G.J.B.Wiiliams, E.F.Mayer Jr.,
M.D.Brice, J.R.Rodgers, O.Kennard, T.Shimanouchi and M.Tasumi, 1977

The Protein Data Bank: 
A Computer-based Archival File for Macromolecular Structures

J. Mol. Biol., 112, 535-542

Also you can easily find notes on PDB format definition,
in manuals of molecular design programs, such as Biograf.
