for physics, leaning more towards the theoretical/mathematical side than applications, if possible.

H. B. Callen, Thermodynamics and an Introduction to Statistical Physics

A standard advanced textbook is

F. Reif, Fundamentals of Statistical and Thermal Physics

A very good one is also

C. M Van Vliet, Equilibrium and Non-Equilibrium Statistical Mechanics

Also vol. V of Landau and Lifshitz is highly recommendable. Also Vols. IX and X on quantum equilibrium and kinetic theory (transport equations), respectively, are excellent.

Kardar's book and notes are mostly statistical mechaincs, but the first sections are on thermodynamics.
