JEVONS, W. STANLEY. - The Principles of Science: a treatise on logic and scientific method.
London, Macmillan 1874. Two volumes octavo contemporary calf (rebacked) with the gilt stamp of Glasgow University on the front boards. Some foxing or browning but quite a good set. ¶ First edition and a pretty good association copy, I think. This was a university prize in ethics awarded in 1874 to 'Kentigernus W. McCallum' and signed by Edward Caird. This is, of course, Mungo W. MacCallum who studied with and revered Caird and carried his influence to Sydney, as did other pioneering educators at Sydney University. The influence of Jevons on MacCallum is much less apparent but Caird did decide that a gifted young disciple should read the new work of a contemporary whose views conflicted so much with his own.AUD 1500.00 [Appr.: EURO 1064.25 US$ 1150.51 | £UK 921 | JP¥ 128219] Book number 8337
