Grand documentOriginal passage from the "Grand document".

-Lettre du 3 mars 1741 (de Florence): He is very grateful for the receipt of the money; is going to send him various works, firstly 2 vols. of the Museum Florentinum including large Medici coins with his explanation. He quotes the prices; also a very ancient Greek commentary an Homer lately published at Venice from the codex in St. Mark’s library. He asks to be sent Queen Christina’s «nummo phylacium» with Havercamp’s commentary and other philological works. I have never had vol. 5 of the Misc. Obsns. He refers to the «examen controversiae» between himself and Maffeius included in a book brought out at Venice, on which he has further (illegible) things to say. I am now engrossed in examining the rest of the coins in the Medici collection comprising 3 volumes and when I have time adding notes to Cricellarius’ work. Canon Mazzochi is said to have much to add to the history and controversies of the Pandects. I long for the appearance of your Sicilian journey, and he speaks of Christian mediaeval inscriptions found at Catania. (Oxford, Bodleian Library, MS D’Orville 499, f° 83-84).
