The first instance of putting the majors in the corners I'm aware of is Unicorn Great Chess.  This array was originally invented by David Paulowch but not yet published here when John Lewis invented it independantly (although it was already included in ChessV.)  Two-step castling makes some sence given the rooks are one square closer and thus the same distance from the king as in orthodox chess.
