Just guessing, but you may mean "Cartograpic Projection Procedures for 
the UNIX Environment - A User's Manual" by Gerald I Evenden. This is 
essentially the manual for PROJ.4, the projection filter, but also 
contains descriptions and illustrations of many different projections.

You can obtain it with the source code for PROJ.4, by anonymous ftp from
