Ok, great... I was unsure where you were headed as technically the Mondial race cars were 4-Cylinder, 2-Liter affaris and as far as I know, none were 6-Cylinder. Basically by adding the two extra cylinders and creating a 6-Cylinder (inline) the 118 and 121 LMs came to be. These were far from the 2-Liter Mondials and had a much larger displacement of 4.4-Liters. The nomenclature of "Mondial" was never used for these inline 6-cylinder cars and we can only confirm four are around. Those four are 121 LMs noting that I know of no more 118 LMs in existence.
So in summary there were four Inline 6-Cylinder 121 LMs from the mid-50s and that said, there is no books specifically on them. You can find info looking through Acerbi's book which lists most Ferraris. If it is the 4-Cylinder 500 Mondials you seek info on, well Francesco Scaletti's Ferrari I Quattro Cilindri (4-cylinder Ferraris) is a great one!
