What Is Mathematical Logic? by J. N. Crossley, C.J. Ash, C.J. Brickhill, J.C. Stillwell A serious introductory treatment geared toward non-logicians, this survey traces the development of mathematical logic from ancient to modern times and discusses the work of Planck, Einstein, Bohr, Pauli, Heisenberg, Dirac, and others. 1972 edition.
Abstract and Concrete Categories: The Joy of Cats by Jiri Adamek, Horst Herrlich, George E Strecker This up-to-date introductory treatment employs category theory to explore the theory of structures. Its unique approach stresses concrete categories and presents a systematic view of factorization structures. Numerous examples. 1990 edition, updated 2004.

He also examines the relationship between mathematical theories, empirical data, and philosophical presuppositions. 1968 edition.
Logic for Mathematicians by J. Barkley Rosser Examination of essential topics and theorems assumes no background in logic. "Undoubtedly a major addition to the literature of mathematical logic." — Bulletin of the American Mathematical Society. 1978 edition.
Toposes and Local Set Theories: An Introduction by J. L. Bell This introduction to topos theory examines local set theories, fundamental properties of toposes, sheaves, locale-valued sets, and natural and real numbers in local set theories. 1988 edition.
A classic introduction to mathematical logic from the perspective of category theory, this text is suitable for advanced undergraduates and graduate students and accessible to both philosophically and mathematically oriented readers. Its approach moves always from the particular to the general, following through the steps of the abstraction process until the abstract concept emerges naturally. Beginning with a survey of set theory and its role in mathematics, the text proceeds to definitions and examples of categories and explains the use of arrows in place of set-membership. The introduction to topos structure covers topos logic, algebra of subobjects, and intuitionism and its logic, advancing to the concept of functors, set concepts and validity, and elementary truth. Explorations of categorial set theory, local truth, and adjointness and quantifiers conclude with a study of logical geometry.
