Joseph T. Clark, S. J., Conventional Logic and Modern Logic:
A Prelude to Transition
  (Philosophical Studies of the American
Catholic Philosophical Association, III) Woodstock, Maryland:
Woodstock College Press, 1952—

Alonzo Church, "Logic: formal, symbolic, traditional," Dictionary of Philosophy  (New York: Philosophical Library, 1942), pp. 170-182. The contents of this ambitious Dictionary are most uneven. Random reference to its pages is dangerous. But this contribution is among its best. It is condensed. But not dense. A patient and attentive study will pay big dividends in comprehension. Church knows the field and knows how to depict it. A most valuable reference.

Another book to which random reference is dangerous

For greater depth, see "Cassirer and Eddington on Structures,
Symmetry and Subjectivity" in Steven French's draft of
"Symmetry, Structure and the Constitution of Objects"
