Richard posted the following within a thread that I shared a particular bottle on.. Want to add his post here with the book references.

From Richard :

For those who are not familiar with Chinese history and culture or the language, I would like to recommend the following books for your reference:

A Glossary Of Chinese Snuff Bottle Rebus by Raymond Li
Chinese Snuff Bottle Themes, Popular Stories & Fables by Raymond Li

Raymond is a collector cum dealer in Hong Kong many years ago and had since pass on. His son is now carrying on his business.

He also published a few other titles that are also good reference books:

Snuff Bottle Terminology
The Art Of Imitation In Chinese Snuff Bottles
The Medicine-Snuff Bottle Connection
The Miniature Arts In China

Thanks Richard  Smiley
