If you're looking for books try:
"Mickey Baker's Complete Course in Jazz Guitar" Books 1 & 2
The version I have is published by: Lewis Music Publishing Co., Inc., 1955, U.S.A.

There are lots of extended chords (11ths, 13ths with flatted 5ths, 9ths, etc.), as well as explanations about where to use them. It might take a while to get your fingers used to playing some of these chords but it's well worth the effort. In addition to chords, there is a lot on melody lines, soloing, scales, rhythm changes, etc.
