   I recommand you "A stereotaxic atlas of the Albino mouse forebrain" 
B. M. Slotnick and C.M. Leonard  U.S. government printing office 1975.

  This atlas provides a stereotaxic and anatomical guide to the brain of
the CF-1 strain albino mouse that is very clear and precise. It has been
used for placing stimulating electrodes and making lesions in the brain
too. I hope this will be useful.
