This is a clearly written introduction to mid-19th century formal and philosophical Logic. Hence it is Aristotelian Logic rather than modern mathematical Logic that is addressed, with some use of Venn diagrams. The book contains some material influenced by William Hamilton's controversial doctrine of the quantification of the predicate. However, this does not seriously obstruct the reader who wants to learn about immediate inference and the theory of syllogism.
[Note: this is a review of an 1885 original, not the print on demand versions.]

Página 215 - O'er Roslin all that dreary night A wondrous blaze was seen to gleam ; Twas broader than the watch-fire's light, And redder than the bright moonbeam. It glared on Roslin's castled rock, It ruddied all the copse-wood glen ; 'Twas seen from Dryden's groves of oak, And seen from cavern'd Hawthornden.
