    Well, "best" is always difficult. "Textbook of Histology" by Bloom and Fawcett is very comprehensive. The older editions (7th , 8th) of "Histology" by Ham are also very comprehensive. Newer textbooks are shorter, but not necessarily worse.
    How about the "Handbook of Physiology" series? They always have a chapter or two on the functional anatomy/histology/ultrastructure of the organ system they are dealing with, written by the top people in the field.
