FIRST EDITION, PRE-PUBLICATION PRESENTATION COPY Original publisher's cloth over boards, cut flush, front cover lettered and ruled in black; presentation inscription, "G.E. Jelf, with the Author's sincere regards. Feb. 22, 1896." Preserved in a red morocco-backed slipcase and chemise. First edition of Carroll's early work of logic, the first issue with the introduction dated January 1896. Intended to supply "for a most interesting mental recreation," this work anticipates his later Game of logic (1897), and introduces his inventive use of square Venn diagrams to represent original syllogisms.
