Ah, that book seems to be available online:
Always nice to know free etymological dictionaries! This one's quite old
(1909), but appearently still a usuable reference for Germanic cognate sets.
It's in German, though. And the alphabetical order is according to Indian
scripts (well, it's much more logical)! Wait, I see that Pascal must be
referring to a different source, since this book doesn't relate "dunkel" to
"dusk" (in the entry "(dem)"):
