- In 1717 Abraham Sharp published in his Geometry Improv'd the Briggian logarithms of numbers from 1 to 100, and of
**primes**from 100 to 1100, to 61 places; these were copied into the later editions of Sherwin and other works. - Thus 2, 3, 5, 7 and I I are
**primes**, for each of these occurs twice only in the table. - The number r is usually included amongst the
**primes**; but, if this is done, the last paragraph requires modification, since 144 could be expressed as 1.2 4.32, or as 1 2.2 4.3 2, or as IP. 2 4.32, where p might be anything. - In the old times the grand-prince was simply
**primes**inter pares among the minor princes, and these lived with their boyars almost on a footing of equality. - The seventh article provided that bountied sugars (sucres
**primes**) must be excluded from import into the territories of the signatory powers, by absolute prohibition of entry or by levying thereon a special duty in excess of the amount of the bounties, from which duty sugars coming from the contracting countries, and not bountyfed, must be free.
