Another book that I think would be excellent for self-study,
maybe even more so than Kasriel's text, is:

"Introduction to Topology and Modern Analysis"
by George F. Simmons

I didn't think about Simmons's book until now, otherwise
I would have mentioned it earlier. Simmons' book is less
of a topology text than Kasriel's book and its coverage
is much broader. There's a lot of verbal exposition
in Simmons' book, also, which is why I think it'd be
great for self-study. Another interesting feature of
Simmons' book that it covers a lot of topics that you
usually find only in texts that are much more advanced,
topics that have a broad genuine interest and a lot
of mathematical substance to them.
