there are a couple of relevant paragraphs in Basic algebraic geometry by shafarevich which i recommend, as well as a historical appendix. e.g. he gives an example to show that unlike the one dimensional case, there exist lattices in C^2 for which not even any meromorphic functions can be periodic (chapter VIII.1). in addition to siegel and swinnerton dyer, mumford's other theta functions book is one i would recommend, volume 1 of the three volume series, something like "tata lectures on theta I". Also in lecture IV of his Curves and their Jacobians, now included in his "red book", at least the first 8 pages give an invaluable and succinct introduction to principally polarized abelian varieties and their "moduli" (classifying spaces).
And let's get "morphisms" out of the way, since the word appears even in swinnerton -dyer. In one sense it is a generic version of the several terms automorphism, isomorphism, homomorphism, homeomorphism, diffeomorphism,... i.e. a map that preserves some structure to be specified. In algebraic geometry it usually means a structure preserving map that is defined everywhere, as "holomorphic" is used in complex analysis to mean meromorphic and having no poles. so in swinnerton - dyer it probably means holomorphic map. but it is often defined where it is used.
