Elements of Deductive Logic
by Antony Eagle
Publisher: University of Adelaide 2008
Number of pages: 178
This is a textbook covering the basics of formal logic and elementary metatheory. Its distinguishing feature is that it has more emphasis on metatheory than comparable introductory textbooks. It was originally written to accompany lectures in an introductory to intermediate logic course at the University of Oxford, but it is designed to be used independently.

The book covers the boolean connectives, formal proof techniques, quantifiers, basic set theory, induction, proofs of soundness and completeness for propositional and predicate logic, and an accessible sketch of Godel's first incompleteness theorem.
An undergraduate college level textbook covering first order predicate logic with identity but omitting metalogical proofs. The first rules of formal logic were written over 2300 years ago by Aristotle and are still vital.
