Japanese dialect?

I was playing a video game just now, and when I approached an NPC he responded with:

こん先ば 会長室でごわす。
ばってん すじょうの 知れんヤツば
会長どんには 会わせられんですたい。

I understand what he's saying, I've just never seen this dialect before.  Does anyone know what region this is from?  During an earlier cut scene there was one sentence that I did not understand a single word from; I knew what he was saying from the sequence of events and everyone's response, but the structure and words were totally unfamiliar to me.

Actually while I'm here, does anyone know of any books regarding Japanese dialects?  Preferably in English, but Japanese would be fine too.  I get exposure to the usual Osaka and Kansai dialects through general media, but I'd really like to learn more about other patterns in the language.
