    I'm sure there's a book out with that title. Also The Amatuer's Mind by Jeremy Silman has games with an IM v amatuers.

    There's a book with that very title an it's exactly what you're looking for.

    It starts out with 1200 players and moves up to IM I think.

    If you have Chessbase you can construct a filter.  When the filter screen comes up, select the rating range for the amateurs - say, 1600-2000 ELO for "One" player- and nothing else, just click "OK".  Then filter those results by setting the range at 2200-2800 for "One" again, and it should give you all the games with one master and one amateur.

    The Euwe & Kramer book Chess Master vs Chess Amateur is very good at illustrating the typical mistakes in thinking strong amateurs make.  They were one of the best writing teams in chess.
