For the record there have apparently been 21 Yearbook surveys, though I'm not surprised that they are largely from the '90s.

There is a NIC Yearbook article on it, probably more than just one.

@OP, ChessPubber (inactive) Michael Goeller put together some notes and games on 3 d4 which I liked.
http://www.kenilworthchessclub.org/games/java/2008/petroff-d4.htm There is a pgn file for download right at the end.

I investigated sources and there are a couple of old books on the Petroff which deals with this line in one chapter (at most). I think the most helpful (maybe) would be  GM Jussupow's Informant book-length ECO series guide to the Petrol. But it is in Informant language!
I also remember there was a Gata Kamsky game where he wiped a younger Magnus Carlsen off the board with this. That was part of the inspiration and attraction to checking out this line.

This variation is covered in "An opening reperrtoire for the attacking player" by Keene & Levy , it's old stuff but interesting !

I recall that it's been covered in various Yearbook Surveys (you can search on the New in Chess website). But Collins is the only source I know of that gives it in a repertoire book, from White's point of view.

For recent games, you may like to check Ivanchuk-Giri from this year's FIDE World Cup.

Sam Collins recommends it in A Simple Chess Opening Repertoire for White. It's a slim book; not sure how detailed you want the coverage to be.

I play in a thematical Petroff Corr tournamnet at ICCF and I met this line in two games.
I dont play Petroff in normal cases so I played a mainline recommended by Petroff Move by Move and both games become very drawish endgames. The funny thing is that I will win game nr 2 since opponent first blundered an important pawn and then made an endgame mistake.
I will not post the games here or  say anything more since the games are secret to public according to tournament rules

Are there any good sources that recommend 3.d4 (the Steinitz Attack) against the Petroff? I've seen some games in this line and it looks interesting, but I don't know if there's been much coverage of it.
