Grand documentOriginal passage from the "Grand document".

-Lettre du 16 février 1724 (de): At the beginning of the negotiations, Anna Margaretha Schlegel declared that her late husband’s numismatic collection contained 1,500 coins and 2,000 medals, which were in excellent condition and could be bought by anyone without hesitation. She also provided a catalogue on the available books and minerals and regretted that she could not provide a catalogue on the coins. Concerning the price, she did not give a sum but promised to be open to negotiations (Library of Göttweig Abbey Cod. 691 71r–v; Mayer 2020).
