Dear Staffan,

There is a Handbook of the History of Logic, see 

It is intended to be 11 volumes, 8 have appeared. I think the authors 
would send you drafts for their chapters that have not yet appeared if you 
contact them (coincidentally, I have been reading some of the chapters 
for their set theory volume recently, so I had the link handy).

While I am planning to photocopy a selection of papers and hand out, it would be really useful to have a textbook as well. However, there seems to be very few modern textbooks in the history of logic. Kneale & Kneale, for instance, write fairly little on 20th century logic, and the other books I have found do it even less.
