Grand documentOriginal passage from the "Grand document".

-Lettre du 15 avril 1683 (d’Istanbul): He will not conceal from B. that his mission was to investigate Greek MSS. and coins, but he has been officially diverted to investigate Oriental codices, from which he hopes to enrich the Royal Library. He hopes for finds of Arabic, Persian, Turkish and Macedonian codices. (Oxford, Bodleian Library, MS Smith 72 fols. 37-40).
