While not focusing on e&m you may enjoy the Dover book 'Mathematics of classical and quantum physics'.

EDIT: on second thought, this may not be what you are looking for (ie: perhaps you looking for a differential forms treatment of E&M?)

Hi,

You might want to take a look at the following book:

https://www.amazon.com/dp/0817642226/?tag=pfamazon01-20

It basically discusses electromagnetism from an axiomatic point in terms of differential geometry. Especially if you are a mathematician this will probably be very interesting.

Parts of it are available online on the homepage of the author:

http://www.thp.uni-koeln.de/gravitation/mitarbeiter/Birkshowme.pdf"

A few suggestions for other topics (I only cite books which are on a mathematically quite high level):

Mechanics: Mathematical Methods in Classical Mechanics by V.I. Arnol'd

Quantum Mechanics: Mathematical Concepts of Quantum Mechanics by Gustafson and Sigal

and of course the books by Reed and Simon

GR: Large Scale Structure of Space-time by Hawking and Ellis
