Hello . Set theory for mathematicians by Jean Rubin is indeed a very excellent book both for the system of natural logic and for the Kelly-Moore set theory .There is also another excellent book on Kelly-Moore 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
