I think both "Modern Applied Statistics with S" (Venables and Ripley 2002) 
and "Introductory Statistics with R" (Dalgaard 2002) have some example.

Basically one way to do this is to build the plot "piece by piece" (aka by 
first principle, or low-level plotting).  For example, the axis() command 
can be useful:
  axis(1) # x-axis at the bottom
  axis(2) # y-axis on the left
  axis(4) # y-axis on the right
