An exciting and important new book (June 2019) is :

Bernard Bolzano His Life and Work

Paul Rusnock and Jan Šebestík

See the announcement on the following webpage of OUP


First editions of Bolzano’s early mathematical works?

I’ve never seen such works for sale. So it was a surprise (on 28/08/19) to see two of them bound together for sale at Sophia Rare books (Copenhagen) – surely a snip (or a joke?) at $35,000? No joke, rather modest compared with many of their prices!  sbr

Edited by Steve Russ and Edgar Morscher,  December 2019
