I'm looking for a reference which has the first statement of the twin prime conjecture. According to wikipedia, nova, and several other quasi-reputable resources it is Euclid who first stated it, but according to Goldston
it was stated nowhere until de Polignac. I'm hoping to resolve this issue by accessing either primary historical documents, or other reputable secondary sources (Goldston being one such example). I have looked at de Polignac's work, and he does indeed make a conjecture, but have been unable to find anything definitive (besides Goldston's statements) that there was no conjecture earlier. If this is too specific for MO, I'll remove the question. Thank you.
