Abstract:

Collection of 19 copies of miscellaneous letters and accounts originally written by Vincenzo di Carlo de' Medici while doing business in Rome and Naples in 1610. Most of the documents appear to be business letters of various levels of formality (from highly formal to letters written in the first person) addressed to counterparts located in various parts of Italy (including Rome, Genoa, Florence, and Naples). The letters concern various kinds of banking operations and other transactions between Vincenzo Medici and individual businessmen. Vincenzo Medici acted as financial director for the family mint and his correspondence contains information about loans and interest; financial products traded in business 'fairs' (national or international over-the-counter markets, such as the Piacenza fair, mentioned throughout the manuscript, where financial instruments such as forward contracts or bills of exchange were traded); and money transfers between various branches of the Medici banks.
