    For what it's worth, I  agree completely. Lots of good history in it, too.

    "I am mainly interested in visual representations of how  the
    projection is created (cone, cylinder etc. and where he 'light' is  coming
    from) and what the resulting graticule looks like. Also, how suitable  it is
    for various types of navigation and what would be the appearence of  great
    circles, small circles and Rhumb lines."
    
    Have you looked at a  Bowditch on map projections? Not bad for that sort of
    thing (the most recent I  have is from 1966 and I haven't checked later  ones).
