Grand documentOriginal passage from the "Grand document".

-Lettre du 31 juillet 1746 (de Florence): He promises d’O. to seek codices for sale, though Florence has lost interest in ancient monuments and countless codices have migrated to Holland, England and Germany after emergence from the squalor of old libraries; so that now that eyes have been opened and keen appetite reawakened for these treasures they have become hard to acquire. He refers to a money transaction with Desmeth. He has sent Wetstenius two consignments of his observations on Morellius’ collection of coins.(Oxford, Bodleian Library, MS D’Orville 499, f° 44-45).).
