I think you might be referring to the "Op-Amp Cookbook" by Walter Jung.
It's thick & has a lot of Op-Amp Theory, History, Cross-References, Data Sheets, etc,...
I have the 1st edition & it's neat & legible, however I'm reading reviews on Amazon.com regarding the current 3rd edition & it's not getting very good reviews. Mainly legibility problems.
Try to grab a previous edition if possible (I'm not familiar with the 2nd edition).
