[HM] making explicit implicit definition

Greetings to all

from this over-heated, quasi-African spot called Seville.

I have a question for those who know well the history of logic.
Who was the first to use the expression "implicit definition"
around 1900? I mean the actual expression (not the idea), and
with the date I mean to exclude Gergonne.

Best regards,

Jose Ferreiros
