Amazon (US) lists a number of booksellers offering Facing the World: Great Moments in Photojournalism, a HUGE hardcover book featuring over 400 large color photographs by the photographers of this great European news agency. Agence-Press France is the oldest continuously-operating news agency in the world (founded in the mid-19th century), although its entry into photojournalism was relatively recent (1985). Published by Abrams in 2001, it covers world events over a 15-year span. The prices on this book are increadibly low: e.g. as low as $4.00 (US). Just make sure you're in good shape before you start looking at it: otherwise you might get a hernia! It weighs 8.6 pounds. I paid about $11.00 for an as-new copy.
