Marson, J.E., 1983
A collection of the 17 NBS Microscopy Booklets published up to 1983 covering a wide range of microscopy techniques, mostly suitable for the amateur working at home.
The booklets were originally in support of Northern Biological Supplies (NBS) products, so you'll have to source alternatives. Unfortunately the book doesn't document the fomulae or contents of these proprietary products.
The booklet is available from Brunel Microscopes, as are many of the formulations used, or equivalents.
