Logick: Or, the Right Use of Reason in the Inquiry After Truth

By WATTS, Isaac

London: J. Buckland et al, 1782. Leatherbound. Very good +. x, 365, [1] p. 22 cm. Full leather. Spine decorated in gilt with flowers, stems, and banenrs. Burgundy spine label. Upper corners worn and spine tail very slightly chipped. Light foxing. Some offsetting on a front page. Title continues: "With a Variety of rules to Guard Against Error, in the affairs of Religion and Human Life, As well as in the Sciences." Though best known as a hymn writer, Isaac Watts (1674-1748) also wrote this popular book on logic. First published in 1724, the book is meant for beginners in logic and divides its study into four parts: Perception, Judgement, Reasoning, and Method. Watts' Logic became the standard text on the subject at Oxford, Cambridge, Harvard, and Yale, being used at Oxford for well over 100 years.

Man's Moral Nature: An Essay

By BUCKE, Richard Maurice, M.D.

New York; Toronto: G. P. Putnam's Sons; Willing & Williamson, 1879. First Edition. Hardcover. Good. xiii, 200 p. 21 cm. 3 b&w plates with tissue guards. Brown cloth hardcover with blank impressing. Some soiling to boards, bumped corners, softened spine ends, small scuff on lower spine. Front free endpaper missing. Signature on a preliminary page. R. M. Bucke dedicates this book to his friend, American poet Walt Whitman, for his "exalted moral nature." Bucke divides man's moral nature into three parts: 1) active nature, by which he acts, 2) intellectual nature, by which he knows, and 3) moral nature proper, by which he feels. Moral nature, Bucke believes, has a physiological basis in the sympathetic nervous system (pictured opposite p. 48) and intellectual nature in the cerebral spinal system (pictured opposite p. 60). He concluds that an evolution in man's moral nature reflects a development of his sympathetic nervous system. The signature of F. E. Perrin at front may be that of London, Ontario resident Finley Ewart Perrin.
