I would like to read a book, the chapter of a book or a web site article (preferably comprehensive) on the history of the concept of a module and the development of the theory of modules in mathematics ...

Can anyone help with some good references ...

nLab has a good rundown on the topic but not really history. However they have a reference at the bottom to a textbook that might help
