Grand documentOriginal passage from the "Grand document".

Lettre du 14 juillet 1738 (de Paris): He has undertaken a new edition of a work on coins which is in demand with additions and corrections and fuller commentaries, indicating the various contributors to the collection which wrongly have all been attributed to Harduin. Perhaps I shall add a paper on Goltzius’unpublished work and some rarer coins, which together will make up a book of 2 volumes (Oxford, Bodleian Library, MS D’Orville 482, f° 213-214).
