Die Grundlagen der Arithmetik. Eine logisch mathematische Untersuchung über den Begriff der Zahl. Centenarausg. Mit erg. Texten kritisch hrsg. von Christian Thiel. (German) Zbl 0584.03001

Hamburg: Felix Meiner Verlag. LXIII, 187 S. DM 120.00 (1986).
The book contains, as the title indicates, Frege’s ”Grundlagen der Arithmetik” - the work published in 1884 and being the first book pronouncing the ideas of logicism. It is supplemented with an introduction and notes of the editor as well as with some reviews. The introduction presents the aims of ”Grundlagen”, the main problems of it and the place of it in the whole scientific output of Frege. To show the reception of the ”Grundlagen”, the editor has collected some reviews of Frege’s book (e.g. reviews by Hoppe, Cantor, Eucken, Lassnitz, Scholz, remarks of Zermelo, Schröder, Husserl).
Finally, it should be noted that the book is published in a beautiful get-up.
