"Two-track depictions of Leibniz's fictions"
G. W. Leibniz (1646-1716) wrote in a 14/24 june 1695 letter
"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.
