Jevons' earlier books General Mathematical Theory of Political Economy (1862) and The Theory of Political Economy (1871) have been described as the beginning of applying mathematical method in economics. Jevons pursued his work in logic simultaneously with his work in political economy. In 1864 he published a small book Pure Logic; or, the Logic of Quality apart from Quantity, incorporating a critique of Boole's system of logic. In 1870 his Elementary Lessons on Logic appeared and became a widely used elementary textbook on logic. The more advanced work offerred here - Studies in Deductive Logic - was published in 1880 and consists mainly of exercises and problems for the use of students. ; Experience the pleasure of reading and appreciating this actual printed item. It has its own physical history that imbues it with a character lacking in ephemeral electronic renderings.
