It seems extremely difficult to find a book that elaborates on Fichte's later period (after Jena period) thoughts. Can anyone recommend me a book?

The New Essays on Fichte's Later Jena "Wissenschaftslehre" may be what you're looking for. –  Ben Feb 18 '13 at 21:00
While this is really specific it could still benefit from a little more exposition about the nature of the text you're looking for: what you might be studying or reading that's made this interesting for you; what you might have found already; maybe a little about the style of text with respect to depth of engagement that you may be looking for (introductions, reviews, critical essays) –  Joseph Weissman Feb 19 '13 at 22:39
@JosephWeissman I searched a bit and allegedly there is very little to be found at all (at least originally in English; in Japanese, Italian or German there might be more). (See the SEP entry on Fichte if you want to verify.) –  user3164 Feb 19 '13 at 23:22
