history of comparative morphemes

Does anyone know literature on the history of comparative affixes? Recently, I got interested in relation between comparison and low degree, and I found a couple of languages where comparison is marked with (what historically used to be) a low degree modifier (like 'slightly'). Does anyone know languages like that? Other common sources of comparative morphemes? Any books/papers to study? Thanks a lot!
