Hello . Set theory for mathematicians by Jean Rubin is indeed a very excellent book both for the system of natural logic and for the KellyMoore set theory .There is also another excellent book on KellyMoore set theory by Donald Monk. However both books are out of print. Perhaps Herman could give all of us a present by arranging for the book to be published in Dover so that it would be as inexpensive as possible for the benefit of future generations . And while I'm at it let me mention that the best book on set theory to appear lately did come out in Dover  Raymond Smullyan and Melvin fitting set theory and the continuum hypothesis . And yes of course Happy Birthday to Herman Rubin .smn
