Grand documentOriginal passage from the "Grand document".

-Lettre du 13 octobre 1594 (de ?): [He says how he had arranged the visit to Utrecht with Scaliger, and apologises for the delay in returning.] Numismatum Graecorum quae apud Abrahamum Gorlaeum exstant, tanta est copia atq’ praestantia ut plusculis hebdomadis ne dicam diebus opus fuisset ad eas accurate perlustrandas. Sed dabitur fortassis alias occasio id comodius faciendi. [There are so many and such outstanding Greek coins which are in Abraham Gorlaeus’s collection that there would have been a need for several weeks rather than days to look through them accurately. But perhaps, another time, the opportunity will arise of doing so at greater ease.] (British Library, MS Burney 371, f.99; Burnett, forthcoming).
