Hi Ivan,
I have the original in german language and can recommend it. Many fields of microsope use are described with general information, methods and recipes. It is a very good starting point for the ambitioned amateur.

Do people here have magic powers of being able to discern clarity
in a foreign language they don't even know?...

Given MicroBob's recommendation of the German version
and being blessed with the ability to copy text into DeepL
https://www.deepl.com/translate

I think the publisher's description inspires confidence that it should be 45 Euros well spent:
http://www.ediciones-omega.es/microbiol ... 570-1.html


The microscope opens perspectives on incredibly interesting small worlds that would otherwise be unknown. From houseplant viruses to the study of blood cells to the unicellular organisms of the garden puddle, this book invites students to make their own observations in many areas of the microcosm.

The basic methods it describes are: simple and special working techniques; durable staining procedures; production of permanent preparations and reference collections; special procedures such as darkfield, diffraction contrast, and polarization; culture of bacteria, algae, microfungi, and protozoa.

Thanks for that, Bob

I was curious as to why your link did not work,
but then realised that the closing / has escaped from the confines of the square brackets.
