First, you really need the set, and specifically volume 1.
The table of contents is very clear on where to find everything. This volume covers basic mathematical operations, and limits.
Even if you do not ever have the energy to follow the logic, it is still a worthwhile exercise to read the text. Their discussion's in the text are instructive and definitive.
As far as being a reprint, it is better than most of the reprints and is readable. Figuring out the notation of propositional logic does require the first volume.

I bought this as a gift for my husband who has wanted this set for a long time and we were both surprised and thrilled with the quality. I was worried when other reviewers has stated that the print was somewhat smudged or looked scanned. However, at least in our set, we did not experience this. Well worth the price!

We bought the three volume set of Principia Mathematica for the math genius son of one of our closest friends as a college graduation gift. After all, what do I know about gifts for math genius's. Apparently it was a very impressive gift and the WOW effect was achieved. The books arrived in truly "like new" condition (I think they were) and in the prescribed delivery time. What more can you ask for. Five star performance without reservation.
