"W. Eugene Smith, Master of the Photo Essay" is what you're talking about,

I have a copy. Cost me $125 and I think they would be very hard to find.
But it is the only source of the whole Pittsburgh Essay that I've seen

His book "Let Truth Be the Prejudice" is a good one too.

Salgado's books: "Workers" and "Other Americas" and  "An Uncertain Grace"
are all superb.

Kertesz: "Diary of Light" and many others.

Bill Allards books (All of them except maybe the lake one are all fantastic).

I could go on for hours...
