velocity in human sensory nerves. Brain Res. 3, 1-122. (special edition)

also various work by A.S. Paintal during the 1960s some in J. Physiology.

I think there was someone at Stanford during the 1980s doing models of compound 
action potentials that used the data from individual fibers to
(re)construct the CAP.
He did lots of nice work and I'm sorry I cant remember his name.
