Ann Preece's book is something of a rarity. I was fortunate to find a copy of
it in the ruins of a long defunct histology laboratory in rural Arkansas
about ten years ago.
It was the book techs studied to pass the registry in the 60's, like Lee
Luna's AFIP manual in the 70's, Sheehan and Hrapchak in the '80's, and of
course Freida Carson in the 90's and continuing into the new century. (I have
ALL of them!) It's still a worthwhile book, easy to read, and invaluable in
reconstructing and trouble-shooting old techniques still in use in the small
laboratories I work in.
To get a copy, I'd try the Web-based out of print books services like
