A modern text is
Dawson TP, Neal JW, Llewellyn L (2003) Neuropathology Techniques. Arnold, London.

The more traditional staining methods are well covered in
Ralis HM, Beesley RA, Ralis ZA (1973) Techniques in Neurohistology. Butterworths, London.

If you want to use some really tradtitional stains, try
Turner OA (1940) A Manual of Neurohistologic Technique. Mosby, St Louis.

A nicely illustrated account of necropsy techniques for the nervous system is
Adams JH, Murray MF (1982) Atlas of Post-mortem Techniques in Neuropathology. Cambridge, Cambridge University Press.
For anatomical dissection of the brain (not usually done by pathologists) the best book is
Montemurro DG, Bruni JE (1988) The Human Brain in Dissection, 2nd ed. New York: Oxford University Press. Another interesting read is a paper by EB Jamieson (1909) The means of displaying, by ordinary dissection, the larger tracts of white matter of the brain in their continuity. J. Anat. Physiol. 43: 225-234.
