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.
