The atlas by Zucker-Franklin and colleagues is an expensive but exhaustive, thorough, and magnificent work that covers normal and disease presentations of cells, smears, and tissues through finely prepared and printed diagrams, photomicrographs (conventional stains and immunofluorescent methods), and section and scanning electron micrographs.
Atlas of Blood Cells in Health and Disease is a much cheaper work and presents only photomicrographs of stained smears; it offers relatively more presentation of how microorganisms appear in blood cells. It should suffice for instruction of technicians and medical students and of house staff not planning to enter hematology. (EJH)
