Cellular and Molecular

Cellular and Molecular Immunology, by Abul K. Abbas, Andrew H. Lichtman is a pretty good one.

A very good introductory book in Immunobiology by Janeway. I would suggest the 3rd edition, my favorite.

Cellular and Mol Immunology

Cellular and Mol Immunology by Abul Abbas - I think the 2003 edition (5th?) is quite excellent.
As mentioned earlier, Janeway and Travers (i think the specific book read was "Immunobiology: the immune system in health and disease") is a good "first principles" guide - pick up any of the old editions for the basics - they haven't changed any.
For slightly more advanced studies, i'd recommend "Kuby" 's Immunology, and for the best, indepth , but easy to understand coverage, Fundamental Immunology, edited by William Paul is my personal favorite. The 5th Edition is just out, and its fully searchable CDROM contains the entire book.
