I just wanted to add that one book I have been told to get is 'let us now praise famous men' by Walker Evans as it is supposed to be superb, does anyone have a copy and could rate this book, thanks.
I highly recommend "The Heart of Prague"available at photo eye.
I don't have an extensive collection, but what I do have includes:
Sally Mann: Immediate Family, At Twelve, Deep South, Still Time
Keith Carter: Blue Man, Mojo, Heaven of Animals, From Uncertain to Blue, Bones, Twenty Five Years,
Josef Sudek: Poet of Prague
Michael Kenna: Retrospective Two
And a few others

I am sure this will not be taken seriuously, but I mean it to be. The Joy of Photography series put out by Kodak. It is a wonderful introduction to photography and "how to" book combined. The material contained within it's pages took me the best part of a lifetime to learn, and there it is all summed up in one glossy publication. If I had had the "Joy of Photography when I began my career, my journey to learn would have contained far fewer bumps. Kodak also used to publish a series of 5x8 or so booklets called "How to". They covered everything from negative contrast masks, to nearly screen door hooks. I still have most of these publications, and refer to them regularly.
I also recommend Sally Mann's Immediate Family, Still Time, & At Twelve. Irreplicable (is that even a word?) and amazing. My professor Vaughn Sills' One Family is really fine, documents a rural family for 15+ years. Josef Sudek's work is lovely; I believe there is a book of his pigment prints. I adore Eudora Welty Photographs; she's not anly a fabulous writer but a wonderful photographer. Some great portraits. Adam Fuss's self-titled photogram book is stunning (but not the same as seeing the prints full-size). His book My Ghost is also quite moving. Also Bill Burke's I want to take picture - a polaroid held together with duct tape can do astounding things.
Mentioned once before in this thread, Weston's "Daybooks" while not really a "photo" book in the classic sense, are an incredible gift from one of the greatest photographers in history.
That's just, like, my opinion, man...
