Grand documentOriginal passage from the "Grand document".

Lettre du 29 juillet 1724 (de): At this point, Bockleth had enough. Although he considered the Schlegel collection to be richer in bracteats and solidi, he advised Bessel to focus on the Olearius collection instead (Library of Göttweig Abbey Cod. 691 196r–197v; Mayer 2020).
