About This Item

London: Printed for John Clark and Richard Hett 1725 First edition. Contemporary calf, rebacked in modern calf, gilt burgundy morocco spine label. . Woodcut head- and tail-pieces and initials. Corners worn, nineteenth-century library armorial bookplates. A good, clean copy. ...throughout the years between 1728 and 1785 the vogue of his Logick in institutions of higher learning does not appear to have slackened. When Jeremy Bentham attended Queens College, Oxford, in the first three years of the 1760s, the Logick was still in use as the standard English treatise in its field; but Bentham regarded it as 'Old Woman's logic'...Dr. Johnson said of the Logick that it 'has been received into the universities, and, therefore, wants no private recommendation'" (Howell, Eighteenth Century British Logic and Rhetoric).

We are members of the Antiquarian Booksellers Association of America and the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers. We have books from the 15th to the 20th century in all prices ranges.
