Dont know this publication or the author, but B-system CBA players could have an inside look of this booklet.
You may want to check first and do the inside look to see if is something useful.

I see scales with fingering numbers, but I dont know if there is any text at all (?).
The statement B-Griff (B-grip) or MIII is not correct.
MIII (manual III) is free bass, and has nothing to do with the grip or griff.
They say its for standard or stradella bass accordion.

[font=Arial, sans-serif]This book features fingering for B-system (also known as B-griff or MIII) chromatic button accordions, with a standard or Stradella bass.[/font]
[font=Arial, sans-serif]It is especially useful for learners of the Russian bayan.[/font]

I saw that book on amazon but I am not sure it would be very helpful.

I find the B system so intuitive that anyone can figure out fingering patterns if we imagine the outer 3 rows as if they were a piano keyboard sliced in groups of 3 notes, and stacked from the chin-end to the floor-end of the accordion.

I made my own charts for 3-note chords and arpeggios. Very easy because scales go from left to right!
If you play B-system CBA, you have many Russian bayan tutor books in the Ruslania online bookshop. 

Alexander Dmitriev's article on CBA fingerings is very good. He's a Saint-Petersburg, Russia, conservatory bayan teacher.
