Rarissimo primo numero. Kennedy: “The first article in the Rivista di Matematica is a ten-page summary of Peano’s work to date in mathematical logic. In his footnotes to the article Peano calls attention to Leibniz’ prediction of a language that “will be universal, equally easy and common, and able to be read without any sort of dictionary, and at the same time a basic knowledge of all things will be assimilated”… Here he also quotes Ernst Schröder to back up his claim. For the first time he mentions Gottlob Frege in a footnote. A brief note summarizes Books Seven, Eight, and Nine of Euclid’s Elements, in a way similar to what he had previously done for Book Five.”
