Default Small caliber catalog?

I have a book called "Cartridges of the World" 9th edition. Fascinating book to have, especially when you find an odd case at the range. The smallest cartridge listed with a picture & a brief description is the .17 Remington. But the book does make some reference to:
2.7mm Kolibri
3mm Kolibri
4.25mm Liliput
.17 Ackley Hornet
.17 Mach IV
.17 Ackley Bee
If anyone has a newer version of the book, do they list more info on small calibers? Since small calibers are mainly in the realm of wildcats I'd guess it would be hard to compile such a book. My head spins when I think of the knowledge that could be gleaned from members on this site! It sure would be a nice book to have especially if it had pictures, capacities, velocities, loads, etc. As far as I know, in America, there are .14, .17, .19, .20 calibers that have reached some notoriety in the "small" world. I wouldn't rule out some of the small .223 & .224 cal wildcats either. Ackley's vol 1 has some info on four .17 cal & one .20/222. A brief description plus some load data. Cool! Are there any other books on sub-calibers anyone would recommend?

Just thinking & wondering out-loud here!

I have a copy of Saunders' book ".17 Caliber Shooting." PM me if you'd like to borrow & peruse it.
