First edition. Jevons had been preoccupied with speculations into the science of logic from the early 1860s. In his work Elementary lessons in logic (1870), he had sought to give a clear notion of the results to which the discoveries of Boole and his predecessors necessarily led. The present work consists of a series of logical problems intended to continue and consolidate these ideas.

From the library of the Oxford-educated classical scholar Edward Adolf Sonnenschein (1851-1929), older brother of the publisher William Swan Sonnenschein. Based on his signature to the half-title, the copious marginal notes appear to be in his hand.

Risse II, 104. Not in Einaudi or Mattioli.
