Here's a candidate book:

Gross, C., & Zeigler, H. (1969). Readings in Physiological Psychology:
  Neurophysiology/Sensory Processes. Harper and Row.

It reprints, among others, papers by Hodgkin, Eccles, Loewenstein, Wald,
Pfaffmann, von Bekesy, Mountcastle, MacNichol, and Lettvin (the ineffable 
"What the frog's eye tells the frog's brain").

There's no Hubel, however, and it's a slim paperback, with a white cover 
with a blue silhouette of a neuron on it.

That's not it, right?
