I have heard of three books of Proakis namely Communication System Engineering, Digital Signal Processing and Digital Communications. I love the way he writes and would like to read about continuous/analog signals and systems by the same writer. Some of it has been dealt with in his book 'Communication System Engineering' namely Fourier Series and Fourier Transform. I want to read other continuous time topics like Laplace transform by the same author.

Is there any book by Proakis available which fully deals with continuous time signals and systems?

No, not as far as I know. I can recommend you two books dealing with continuous-time systems, the Fourier transform, and the Laplace transform, among other topics:

  1. Signals and Systems, Oppenheim, Willsky: a classic, used copies can be found quite cheap
  2. The Fourier Integral and Its Applications, Papoulis: less scary for an engineer than the title might make you think; it's actually much broader and very accessible; it deals with linear systems in general, low pass and band pass systems, the Laplace transform, etc.
