Fundamentals of Crystallography, C. Giacovazzo, ed., Oxford, 1992,
covers many areas of crystallography in depth, and is a great resource.
For the theory and practice of protein crystallography for a beginner, I
would also recommend two books:
Principles of Protein X-ray Crystallography, Jan Drenth, Springer-Verlag,
Crystallography Made Crystal Clear, Gale Rhodes, Academic, 1993.
