Indeed, Martin,

It's hard to find a comprehensive "History of Retrograde Analysis" -- I 
do not know any specific book on this topic.

The best history overview (some 50 pages, dated 2006) I know is Chapter 
2 in Dittmann's "Der Blick zurück" ("Ursprung und Emenzipation der 
Retroanalyse" -- "Origin and Emancipation of Retrograde Analysis").

Also Fabels "Meisterwerke der Retroanalyse" (dated 1971 (!!), dealing 
with classical retros only -- that was the time "before proof games") is 
woth reading (see http://www.janko.at/Retros/Masterworks/index.htm)

Best regards,
