Describes the principles and practice of photomicrography for all who contemplate attaching a camera to a microscope.
'If you are a light microscopist, buy this book. If you aspire to be a light microscopist, buy this book ! the textbook of choice for information on and inspiration about the art and science of microscopy.' The Journal of Scanning Microscopies 'Photography with a Microscope is didactic in tone and could be used as a textbook as well as a guide for beginners. The modular approach provides a framework for any course in photo-micrography. Laboratory News ' ! such a book would be a wise investment for communal shelves in the laboratories of graduate students, or for a department's photographer to have on hand.' Mycotaxon '! I would recommend this book ! It will be a useful addition to any library or to the shelf of a microscope room.' British Society for Developmental Biology '! a very good reference source' Savile Bradbury, Quekett Journal of Microscopy '! this book will be useful to all microscopists: the dedicated amateur, those in a research group or using a multi-user facility and those completing a thesis or research project. Just about all that you are likely to want to know about recording the image is found in this very practical book. I would recommend it to all who are serious about recording the microscopical image.' Jeremy Sanderson, Royal Microscopical Society '! a must for institutions with sophisticated microscopic equipment.' Spixiana
