Essential Spider-Man Vol. 1
1.  Essential Spider-Man Vol. 1 by Stan Lee
The list author says:
  "This is where it all began. This is Stan Lee and Steve Ditko writing and drawing the first issues that would create a legend. A must for any fan. Book is in black and white but not a huge deal."

Spider-Man: Death of Gwen Stacy
3.  Spider-Man: Death of Gwen Stacy by Gerry Conway
