My favorites are the Bach Cello Suites. Very challenging musically, stay below G for the most part. There are numrous versions in print, but I prefer the Peters Edition becuase it has not been edited as much as some. There are some arrangements for trombone, but I'm not particularly fond of them. Doug Yeo's got some great stuff on his website about the Suites.
Yup, they're all in bass cleff.
It definately helps to start by listening to a recording.
There's some good bassoon stuff out there, but it tends to be a lot more rangey and frequently goes into tenor cleff.
