This is quoting the current value of A079614, and the value duplicated
in the definition of A051501. On page 21
of "The prime numbers, the most mysterious figures in Math",
David Wells (John Wiley, 2005) I read that there is another figure 7 in the
constant, 1.25164759777905 . Which of the two versions is correct?

shows only two 7's and more digits, 1.25164 75977 90463 01759 44320 53623,
so I'd think that the Well's quotation is a misprint .
