My own favourite handbooks are probably far from being the most popular ones:
Anttila, Raimo. 1972. _An Introduction to Historical and Comparative Linguistics_. New York: Macmillan.
Hock, Hans Heinrich. 1984 (2nd ed. 1991). _Principles of Historical Linguistics_. Berlin, New York, Amsterdam: Mouton de Gruyter.
Needless to say, you won't learn it all from handbooks, but once you get the hang of the principles you will be able to learn by example.

Could someone suggest a good book in order to learn methodically the basics of comparative historical linguistics?
