Grand documentOriginal passage from the "Grand document".

'Claymond's heavily annotated copy of the first edition of Budé’s De asse. He came to Budé only through his main scholarly endeavour, which was a massive commentary on the text of Pliny’s Historia Naturalis. His notes refer to Budé’s work whenever Roman currency is mentioned; he also once refers to Tunstall’s De arte supputandi for additional information about the same topic. He follows Budé’s equivalences of Roman sums into modern French money, but he usually adds an English equivalent.' (Burnett 2020b, p. 405-6)
