I am looking for a good textbook explaining:

"Transformation of Multiple Traveling Salesmen Problem to the Standard Traveling Salesman Problem."

    $\begingroup$ You might be asking for too much by asking for a textbook that explains every step in detail. This is the sort of transformation that textbooks might expect you to figure out based on other information you learn about similar or simpler transformations. Similarly, you might consider trying to do the transformation yourself and then post here to ask a more specific question when you get stuck. $\endgroup$

The transformation is mentioned in Ahuja, Magnanti, and Orlin, Network Flows, Exercise 16.25(b).
