I believe you mean "free-flying staircase" which are staircases that do not attach to or are supported from the surronding structure. check out http://www.historiccharleston.org/museum/nrhome.html for the Nathaniel Russell 3 story free-flying staircase. An other source of infomation is Historic American Building Survey http://www.cr.nps.gov/habshaer/coll/ even though they are a little harder to filter out the infomation you are looking for.
I'am also looking for information and or a set of measured drawings of one of these staircases so I do not have to re-invent the wheel when I install it in the house I'm building.
