The single _greatest_ book on the theory and practice of
chromatography and protein purification is "Chromatography" by
"Protein purification " by Scopes might be a classics (mainly
due to its non-chromatography parts) and and a ghost of many
other "methods" cookbooks might be filling bookshelves, but
absolutely nothing compares with it in the scope, clarity and
breadth of its approach. An absolute must read (and have) for
anyone serious about protein chromatography - even after > 15
years since its publication. Even after all this time, the ONLY
"real" thing that's not described there is IMAC - but then again,
IMAC is an affinity chromatography and Osterman's chapter on
affinity chromatography is outstanding!
It's hard to find but looks available:
I bought mine 12 years ago from warehouse in Germany for
$238. Duh, there was no online shopping then and none of
this university's libraries had it....
