        this is all a matter of personal prefereence but I think that you would
be better served by buying two texts.
1.  A general histology text with good pictures and a technical text with
histologic techniques and IHC.

There are several histology texts that would be suitable. The one we use for
our freshman dental students this year is "Color Textbook of Histology" by
Leslie P. Gartner and James L . Hiatt
Saunders Co. (around $48). This gives a good overview of the histology of
tissues and has a good mixture of diagrams, light micrographs and EM

2.    Technique wise I like ...
"Humason's Animal tissue Techniques"  by Janice K. Presnell and Martin P
Schreibman. 2nd edition. Johns Hopkins Press. I have found this to have a broad
range of techniques and to be very reliable. It will at least give you the
principles of IHC
