Question about a verse from the Kitab-i-Iqan

Allah'u'Abha


In the Kitab-i-Iqan, paragraph 7, there is written, on the subject of Noah :
"He several times promised victory to His companions and fixed the hour thereof. But when the hour struck, the divine promise was not fulfilled. This caused a few among the small number of His followers to turn away from Him, and to this testify the records of the best known books."

In the Quran and Torah, there is not written that the promise was unfulfilled and that his disciples left Noah. So, what does "the records of the best known books" mean ?

EDIT : Second question from the same passage :

Finally, as stated in books and traditions, there remained with Him only forty or seventy-two of His followers.

What are these books ?

Thank you.
