*****************************

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
