ADS is your friend!

maybe this paper (http://esoads.eso.org/abs/1993SSRv...66..365L) (free scanned gif) will help you further. And that paper has been cited by this paper (http://esoads.eso.org/abs/1998A%26A...331L..29E), and so you can go on and on and on (now there's an ABBA song!).

If I am not mistaken Prof. Henny Lamers from Utrecht University wrote a book about LBVs. Indeed (though not as first author) here it is on amazon (http://www.amazon.com/Physics-Luminous-Variables-Astrophysics-Science/dp/0792304438/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1227785261&sr=1-2).
