Grand documentOriginal passage from the "Grand document".

-Lettre du 6 décembre 1703 (sans lieu) : Besides all the Saxon manuscripts his book will contain all the Saxon coins printed with a dissertation on them by Sir A. Fountain. The whole book will be in 2 large folios. The Durham society has been by far his best patrons and subscribers. “… You’l have all the Saxon Coines in sculpture much above double the number, that have been printed, with a dissertation upon them by Sir Andrew Fountain.” (Oxford, Bodleian Library, MS Eng. hist. b. 2 fols. 137, 138; Harris 1992, p. 389–90, Letter 251; Burnett 2020b, p. 1605).
