The format you are describing is for EPS Metafiles which are used by MS Windows applications. With these files, you can find the offset to the TIFF, extract it to a file, and then use libtiff on the extracted data.

The Mac does not use Metafiles (though I wish it would). On Mac, EPS previews are kept in the resource forks as 'PICT' resources. If your EPS file was created on a Mac, open it with ResEdit. You should see the PICT there.
