Grand documentOriginal passage from the "Grand document".

-Lettre du 9 avril 1743 (de Florence): He refers to works received, e.g., Queen Christina’s nummophylacium; and to payment for the forthcoming vol. 6 of the Museum Florentinum. He congratulates d’O. especially on his Delian dissertations. He leaves it to d’O’s. discretion whether to have my observations printed. I have a very difficult task in expounding the Medici coins. If you think my work worthy of publication and not inferior to Havercamp’s work, please allow me to inscribe it to you following Spanheim’s example of dedicating his «de usu et praestantia numismatum» to Falconerius. I am delighted with your package of books which contains the authors I most coveted. ...That Count Thoms suffocates me with letters. (Oxford, Bodleian Library, MS D’Orville 499, f° 97-98).
