Grand documentOriginal passage from the "Grand document".

Lettre du 25 août 1735 (de Dijon): Abstract : He rejoices in Burmann junior’s promotion to a good place at Franecker a valuable stepping stone - and in Burmann senior’s trouncing of the tasteless observation of Grundlingius and the Leipzig journals. He is interested to learn of van der Hage’s Chronology. To my translation of Petronius’ poems and notes and conjectures an Perviligium Veneris I have added my translation which I have revised of pieces from Ovid (which he specifies). He has included instructions for the printer, and relies on O. to look after his interests, and ensure that at least 100 copies will be provided, with the addition of a Latin treatise on the medals of the Didias family. He explains that he has only been able to collate book I of Suetonius with another MS. Clairvaux and Gravius’ edition. He is impatient for the appearance of O’s. Iter Siculum. He refers to Maffei as still in Paris and engaged in some work or other and as having smirched his standing among savants as a scholar. Among further items he mentions that Prof. Dunod of Besancon has had his history of the ancient Sequani printed at Dijon. (Oxford, Bodleian Library, MS D’Orville 492 f° 92-93).
