This is a bit of a hotchpotch but I found these inspiring:

Friedrich, Indo-European Trees
(A comparative study of tree-roots (ha!!  In both senses) across IE

Kuno Meyer (I think)
A concise comparative Celtic grammar

E. Benveniste
Universals of language

(Can't remember the author)
Prolegomena to a grammar of Basque

On general cultural/linguistic/poetic matters...
Bruno Bettelheim, The uses of enchantment (Sure about author, but  slightly
unsure about title)

There's also a really good collection of essays by Roger Wescott et al on
Proto-linguistics whose title escapes me!

Apologies for the scanty info, but all of this is from memory. I know most
of the titles are correct, though.
