 Set Theory and the Continuum Hypothesis  by Paul J. CohenThis exploration of a notorious mathematical problem is the work of the man who discovered the solution. The award-winning author employs intuitive explanations and detailed proofs in this self-contained treatment. 1966 edition. Copyright renewed 1994.
 Theory of Sets  by E. Kamke, Frederick BagemihlClear and simple, this introduction to set theory employs the discoveries of Cantor, Russell, Weierstrass, Zermelo, Bernstein, Dedekind, and other mathematicians. It analyzes concepts and principles, offering numerous examples. 1950 edition.
 The Philosophy of Set Theory: An Historical Introduction to Cantor's Paradise  by Mary TilesBeginning with perspectives on the finite universe and classes and Aristotelian logic, the author examines permutations, combinations, and infinite cardinalities; numbering the continuum; Cantor's transfinite paradise; axiomatic set theory, and more.
 Set Theory and Logic  by Robert R. StollExplores sets and relations, the natural number sequence and its generalization, extension of natural numbers to real numbers, logic, informal axiomatic mathematics, Boolean algebras, informal axiomatic set theory, several algebraic theories, and 1st-order theories.
 Axiomatic Set Theory  by Patrick SuppesGeared toward upper-level undergraduates and graduate students, this treatment examines the basic paradoxes and history of set theory and advanced topics such as relations and functions, equipollence, more. 1960 edition.
 An Outline of Set Theory  by James M. HenleAn innovative introduction to set theory, this volume is for undergraduate courses in which students work in groups and present their solutions to the class. Complete solutions. 1986 edition.
 Basic Set Theory  by Azriel LevyThe first part of this advanced-level text covers pure set theory, and the second deals with applications and advanced topics (point set topology, real spaces, Boolean algebras, infinite combinatorics and large cardinals). 1979 edition.
 Toposes and Local Set Theories: An Introduction  by J. L. BellThis 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.
