Books about hypercomplex numbers

I seek some books on quaternions and, optionally, octonions. What interests me the most is axioms, construction of these numbers, some properties and theorems, but mainly from the algebraic approach. English language or english translation is a serious requirement here.
Could anyone help?

John Baez has an awesome writeup on the octonions. Octonions

The most general view of the subject is in the area of Clifford algebras.
Thanks from topsquark and IAmABread

Great material, Maschke. Thanks a lot.

Any other interesting papers, but concerning quaternions now? And I am not asking only Maschke.
