  • this is a standard text on modal logic

Graham Priest, An Introduction to Non-Classical Logic

  • probably the best introduction to logics outside the family of classical logics

George Boolos, John Burgess, Richard Jeffrey, Computability and Logic

  • a good introduction to computability theory and its relation to logic

Jonathan Bennett, Conditionals: A Philosophical Guide;

David Sanford, If P then Q

  • two of the better introductory books on the logic of conditionals

Anthony Grayling, An Introduction to Philosophical Logic

  • a good introduction to some of the philosophical concepts around logic

Susan Haack, Philosophy of Logics;

John Etchemendy, The Concept of Logical Consequence;

W V Quine, Philosophy of Logic;

Penelope Rush, The Metaphysics of Logic;

Matthew McKeown, The Concept of Logical Consequence
