The Game of Logic.London: Macmillan and Co., 1887 Stock Code: 146033
Complete with the playing countersSecond (first published) edition. This edition is dated a year later than the first edition (as with Alice's Adventures in Wonderland), which was rejected by Dodgson due to the poor printing quality. Accompanying the book are a playing board marked in a lattice pattern and coloured counters; Dodgson's aim with the game card was to depict syllogistic reasoning in such a way that even a child could understand it.
Octavo. Original red cloth, titles to spine and front cover gilt, and black coated endpapers. With the playing card, 9 playing counters (4 pink and 5 grey), and printed envelope as issued.
Wood-engraved diagram frontispiece and numerous diagrams in text.
Spine a touch sunned, corners slightly bumped, faint dust-soiling, the binding otherwise firm, internally fresh and clean; a bright copy.
