What you are looking for is "Oxford Secondary English" by John Seeley (Oxford University Press, first published 1982). There were in fact three of them in the series, and very good they were too! I also still use bits from them! They are all in black and white inside, as you say, but they do have pictures on the oursode (Kid flying kite on the blue one, something that looks like the concourse of a futuristic airport terminal or shopping centre on he red one). It's definitely what you are talking about, though, as it contains the extracts you mention. Hope this helps you track a copy down.
