Grand documentOriginal passage from the "Grand document".

-Lettre du 13 juin 1661 (de Rome) : “The book that your most illustrious Lordship is preparing by far surpasses any other ......having among the rarest qualities the assurance that it does not include modern coins, and the distinction between medallions, large coins and middle-size coins will increase its prestige” (Roma, Archivio del Palazzo Massimo alle Colonne, MS prot. 276; Molinari 2020, note 45).
