Leibniz wrote in a 14/24 june 1695 letter to l'Hospital: "I use the
term *incomparable magnitudes* to refer to [magnitudes] of
which one multiplied by any finite number whatsoever, will be unable
to exceed the other, in the same way [adopted by] Euclid in the fifth
definition of the fifth book [of *The Elements*]." In modern
editions of *The Elements*, the definition of comparability
appears in Book V, Definition 4.
