    Yeah, I'll be the one to throw it out there. Ansel Adams' "The Print". Indispensible.
    Thank you.

    Tim Rudman - The Photographer's Master Printing Course
    Black & White: Photographic Printing Workshop by Larry Bartlett and Jon Tarrant

    These are the two which I regard highest when it comes to printing.
    Regards,

    "Lootens on Photographic Enlarging and Print Quality" for techniques they don't teach anymore. It was in print for so many years and so many editions that prices start at $0.01 on Amazon/Abe books.

    These may be a bit dated on specific material recommendations; but the Lustrum Press "Darkroom" & "Darkroom 2" series provides insights from a collection of past masters.
    More current, "The Art of PHotography" by Bruce Barnbaum is a must have.
