Grand documentOriginal passage from the "Grand document".

Il ya quelques jours que j’ai veu un fort riche cabinet des Medailles Modernes. Le proprietaire qui au commencement ne vouloit que vendre la tout a la fois, est afin convenu avec moi de me laisser choisir un certain \nombre/ de Medailles dont je Vous envoye le cathalogue. Le prix est fort mediocre et presque sur le meme pied que l’on vend dans ce pais-ci les Medalles fabriques à la Tour. Je chargerai son secretaire [of Marechal de Bibersteen] du livre qui traite des Medailles de l’Angleterre: a discourse off Medals, Antient and Modern, together with some accunt of haeds en effigies off illustrious and famous persons in sculps en taille douce off whom we have no Medals extant to with is addet a digression concerning Phisiognomie par Evelyn esq. London. 1697 in fol. que Vous avez tant souhaite d’avoir. (Nationaal Archief, Collectie Fagel 1.10.29, 2025; Burnett 2020b, p. 1637)
