I believe the version you want is:

Leica Manual (15th Edition)
The Complete Book of 35mm Photography
by Douglas O. Morgan, David Vestal, William L. Broeker, et al.
Published by Morgan & Morgan in 1973

It includes several articles by Bill Pierce. Try:

and many others that any search engine can dig up.
