Grand documentOriginal passage from the "Grand document".

-Lettre du 17 août 1652 : instruit Fytton sur la manière de détecter les faux : « osservando non tanto il taglio che come V.S. sa nell’oro è fallace, quanto li piani et l’asprezza del rilievo, con che si distinguono l’antiche da quelle di getto moderne » (voir Missere Fontana 2009, p. 264, note 189).
