I'm not familiar with the Wintrobe book, but you can trust the information at the university websites. Keep in mind that different sources use different reference ranges, and that's true for peripheral blood counts too, but they are all close enough to let you identify what's normal and what's clearly out of range.

I suggest asking your oncologist to explain the bone marrow biopsy results to you. If you are outside the normal range for some of these antigens and other measures, ask if it matters. A doctor who is familiar with your history and your current condition is in the best position to tell you what measures are important and what they mean for your treatment.
