:The second edition of this atlas has been revised and greatly en-larged to take account of recent diagnostic advances in the field of haematology. It contains 750 color photomicrographs of common and less common cell types, and is intended to supplement the per-sonal study of preparations under the microscope.
:The photographs are grouped into five sections covering red cells and their precursors; nonerythroid cells of myeloid origin; lympho-cytes, plasma cells and their derivatives and precursors; miscella-neous cells of blood and marrow, including foreign cells and para-sites; and the imprint cytology of lymph nodes and spleen. Each section is preceded by a brief introduction, and an appendix pro-vides technical details of staining methods. The text accompanying the illustrations serves chiefly to identify the cells, but also gives explanations of certain unusual appearances and the cytochemical reactions where necessary.
:A Colour Atlas of Haematological Cytology will be useful to students of medicine and medical laboratory science, as well as to doctors and technicians specializing in the diagnosis of haematological dis-ease.
Table of Contents
The red cells and their precursors; granulocytes, monocytes and megakaryocytes; lymphocytes, plasma cells and their derivatives and precursors in blood and in bone marrow; miscellaneous cells from bone marrow or blood smears, reticulo-endothelial cells, osteoclasts and osteoblasts, foreign cells and parasites; imprints and sections of lymph nodes and spleen.
:"The new edition of this atlas has been considerately enlarged and now contains 750 colour photomicrographs compared with the 349 of the previous edition. The selection of material is well balanced without undue emphasis on rarities and in the present climate of in-creasing interest in detailed classification of leukaemias and other lymphoid disorders it is good to see that red cells in erythroblast morphology remains well represented. . . This is probably the best general atlas of haematology available. . . it is excellent value for money."

:"Haematologists in training require an atlas of high quality photomi-crographs. . . The 1969 first edition of Hayhoe and Flemans' atlas was widely appreciated and now it appears in a significantly im-proved second edition with more that double the number of pho-tomicrographs, higher quality of reproduction and a more efficient and attractive layout."

:"The photographic quality is splendid, with faithful colour rendering which permits confident recognition and distinction of morphological features."
