[1] D. McKie and C. McKie, Crystalline Solids , Thomas Nelson and Sons, 1974.

A very comprehensive crystallography text.

[2] C. Hammond, The Basics of Crystallography and Diffraction , Oxford, 2001.

Chapter 5 covers lattice planes and directions. The rest of the book gives an introduction to crystallography and diffraction in general.

[3] B.D. Cullity, Elements of X-Ray Diffraction , Prentice Hall, 2003.

Covers X-Ray diffraction in detail. Chapter 2 covers the crystallography required for this.

[4] C. Kittel, Introduction to Solid State Physics, John Wiley and Sons, 2004.

Chapter 1 covers crystallography. The book then goes on to cover a wide range of more advanced solid state science.
