Grand documentOriginal passage from the "Grand document".

'...Mr Noel ... we had a long conversation about the late Baron Hohendorfs Collection; which, he say’s, consists of Printed Books MSS Medals & other Pieces of Antiquity, for all which, he say’s the present Owner now demands £12000. As to the Medals, &c he proposes to sell them to my Lord.' (Wright - Wright 1966, p. 39; Burnett 2020b, p. 1039 n. 273)
