One that I have on my shelf that I've ended up with is Vector Calculus, 2nd Ed., Marsden and Tromba.
Some others I have are Div, Grad, Curl and All That, H.M. Schey Multivariable Calculus, James F. Hurley Intermediate Calculus, James F. Hurley Multivariate Calculus, 2nd Ed. James Stewart The last one listed is nearly the smallest (Div, Curl, Grad is the smallest), but is the most recent, and has lots of drawings in color.
