Grand documentOriginal passage from the "Grand document".

Lettre du 16 mars 1724 (de): In March she declared that the collection contained 5,730 coins for which she demanded the said 2,000 Reichstaler. For the minerals she demanded 60 Reichstaler and 300 Reichstaler for the curiosities. A price for the books and cabinets still needed to be fixed. In order to encourage Bessel, she declared that a few other scholars had already shown some interest in the collection (Library of Göttweig Abbey Cod. 691 190r–191v; Mayer 2020).
