Grand documentOriginal passage from the "Grand document".

'An annotation on the fly-leaf of the copy in the Bodleian Library formerly belonging to Francis Douce states: ‘Monsr Genebrier was in England in 1724 & visited Lord Oxford’s Collection to look at his coins of Carausius’. ... It goes on, ‘This work is much inferior to Stukeley’s on the same subject, in absurdity and wild conjecture.’' (Burnett 2020b, p. 959 n. 186)
