Try these:

The Windows Interface, An Application Design Guide. Microsoft Press
1992, ISBN 1-55615-439-9. -- a little old but a good basic reference.

User Interface Screen Design, by Walter O. Galitz, QED Information
Sciences, Inc. 1993. -- I think this is in its 2nd edition, a good
overview of basic principals.
