The entire book contains much that might be relevant. The work quoted is full of examples (especially chapter 15) of calculation involving "actually" (Jaynes's term) infinite sets. This book is a laying down of the "really trustworthy standards of rigor" (Jaynes's phrase) for certain calculations involving infinite sets.
See the comments to Matheology § 042
