Abstract:

Collection of copies of miscellaneous letters and accounts originally written by Vincenzo di Carlo de' Medici, for the years 1601-1603. 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 Florence, Lucca, Pisa, Pistoia, Ancona, Bologna, Genoa, Naples, Venice and Piacenza). The letters concern various kinds of banking operations and other transactions between Vincenzo Medici and a large number of counterparts, which include some of the most important aristocratic families of bankers (the Strozzi, the Capponi, the Ticci, the Acciaiuoli, the Doni and the Detti, all Florentine bankers, and the banking firm of the Acciaiuoli-Spinelli, with branches both in Florence and Naples); ambassadors (including the Guadagni, who served as diplomats for the Medici for two centuries); various clergymen (including the archbishop of Florence); and individual businessmen. Vincenzo Medici acted as financial director for the family banks 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); money transfers between various branches of the Medici banks; and negotiations for the purchase or sale of textile products. Five notes, probably original, are also laid in the manuscript.
