My favorite would be:

Tukey JW, Exploratory Data Analysis, Addison-Wesley Publishing Company (Reading, MA), 1977.
Box & whiskers plots are described on pages 39-41.

If you have a Stata graphics manual on hand, this reference and several other are noted at the end of the section on graph box (page 75 in the version 9 manual).
