Manuscripts of the Strozzi family by Strozzi family( )

in Italian and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Collection of 17th and 18th century transcripts made for the Strozzi family of Florence of political and religious material, relating to papal diplomacy, etc., of documents dating from the 14th century through the 17th century, with the bulk dating from the 16th and 17th centuries. A note in volume 1 states that the manuscripts came from Rome, from the archives of the Strozzi house, and indicates that the series is incomplete, as may be seen from the lower series of numbers on the spines of the volumes. A note at the end of volume 7 may indicate that the Barberini family also had some part in the collection of these manuscripts. The date of the making of these transcripts is not recorded. An indice de manoscritti, che sono nella libreria dell'Illustrissimo ... Lorenzo Strozzi, duca di Bagnolo e principe di Torano compilati per ordine di Alfabeto, 1728, (volume 199) reveals that the collection at the Folger Shakespeare Library forms a large part of the manuscripts listed in it. The call numbers in the index refer to the upper initial (each of which represents a certain class of document) and the lowest numeral on the spine and a comparative list of the former and present call numbers is tipped into the back of this index. Volumes 1-185 were already so numbered when received. Volumes 186 -199 have since been assigned these numbers arbitrarily, as those they had sometimes overlapped with the first series

Business records of the Barberini and Colonna families by Barberini family( )

in Italian and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This collection relates mainly to banking and real estate activities in Rome, and agricultural estate management in the surrounding area. It includes 27 volumes of bank records, 1630-1818, which throw much light on the administration of two very important Roman banks that are still functioning: the Banco di Santo Spirito and the Monte di Pietà; 27 volumes of estate records for such holdings as Monte Libretto, Monte Maggiore, Monte Rotondo, Monte Flavio, and Bassanello: all important for the study of the last of the feudal regime in Roman Campagna; and 13 volumes of letter books, 1645-1801, containing letters relating largely to estate affairs. Two of these volumes belonged to Principe Taddeo Barberini; the others were those of Principe Urbano Sciarra Colonna. There are also 14 account books, 1645-1802, recording personal expenses of various members of the Barberini family
