A book which seems to meet your requirements is:

	Jet and Turbine Aero Engines by Bill Gunston
	Publisher is Patrick Stephens Limited
	ISBN  1-85260-463-8

I bought this book in England but presume it is available here.  It
was 18 pounds in the UK (about $28).  It is dated 1995 and contains
some information about new engines such as the GE90.  If it is an
update of an earlier edition (probably is) it certainly shows little
signs of not being totally current in 1995.
