Mark Nelson and Jean-Loup Gailly, The Data Compression Book (John Wiley & Sons: 2nd ed., 1995)
Somewhat dated now, but still useful. A general account of data compression algorithms, aimed clearly at programmers – all the main algorithms are implemented in C in the text. The emphasis is on practicalities – this book will not satisfy mathematicians. Among the algorithms included are Huffman, Lempel–Ziv in all varieties, and JPEG.
