Precursors to Sasakian geometry:
Shigeo Sasaki, On differentiable manifolds with certain structures which are closely related to almost contact structure I, Tohoku Math. J. (2) 12 (1960), 459-476 (euclid:1178244407)
Shigeo Sasaki, Y. Hatakeyama, On differentiable manifolds with contact metric structures, J. Math. Soc. Japan 14 (1962), 249-271 (euclid:1261060580)
An early set of lecture notes:
Shigeo Sasaki, Almost contact manifolds, Part 1, Lecture Notes, Mathematical Institute, Tohoku University (1965).
Shigeo Sasaki, Almost contact manifolds, Part 2, Lecture Notes, Mathematical Institute, Tohoku University (1967).
Shigeo Sasaki, Almost contact manifolds, Part 3, Lecture Notes, Mathematical Institute, Tohoku University (1968).
Even today, after 40 years, the breath, depth and the relative completeness of the Sasaki lectures is truly quite remarkable. $[...]$ As it is, the notes are not easily available and, consequently, not well-known. (Boyer-Galicki 07, p. 1)
