I believe that this question has been extensively answered in the thread, so I'm just going to give you a list of books that I own that include photo details.
They're all education/technical books on lighting and portraiture.
Lighting For Portrait Photography by Steve Bavister includes film format, film type, exposure details and lighting details
The Photographic Portrait by Robin Gillanders includes camera, lens and lighting details
Outdoor Lighting: Fashion & Glamour by Cathy Joseph includes camera, lens, film, exposure and lighting details
Portraits And Figures by Terry Hope includes camera, lens, film and exposure details.
I personally don't think that having access to these kind of informations is particularly propaedeutic and I'd much rather reading books about the photographers experience beyond the technical details.
If you're interested in having a peek behind the scenes, I'd recommend reading
Avedon At Work In The American West by Laura Wilson
Annie Leibovitz At Work by Annie Leibovitz
Revelations by Diane Arbus
Magnum Stories by Chris Boot
The New York Times Magazine Photographs by Kathy Ryan
The Contact Sheet by Steve Crist
The World's Top Photographers series of books (my favourites are the one about portraits and the fashion and advertising one)
And finally two guides that are extremely inspiring and detailed are
Train Your Gaze: A Practical And Theoretical Introduction To Portrait Photography by Roswell Angier
Exploring Colour Photography: A Complete Guide by Robert Hirsch
I realise that I've gone a bit OT considering the initial question, but I strongly believe that these books could be way more informative then photo details in regular photo books.
I love looking at photographers' work, but I think that if you're starting out, it's also good to read guides and educational books.
