Grand documentOriginal passage from the "Grand document".

-Lettre du 23 septembre 1723 (de): As Bockleth was an agent for Bessel, Johann Christian Olearius increasingly became an agent for Bockleth. In September 1723, he first reported about his father’s numismatic collection and sent a catalogue. The catalogue is lost (Library of Göttweig Abbey Cod. 691 83r–84v; Mayer 2020).
