An atlas of hematology should serve three ends: it should help the student in his initial struggles with juvenile neutrophils, monocytes, and lymphocytes; it should help the house officer or practicing internist with more subtle identifications (megaloblasts and other abnormal or immature forms); and it should help the hematologist with the esoterica (Leishmania donovani in the marrow, for instance). This atlas meets those criteria, especially the first, fairly well.
For the student, normal forms are well covered, and brief captions point out important features of the photos. Serial phase-contrast photographs of supra-vitally stained leukocytes convey a vivid sense of differences
