Abstract:

Ledger of accounts of Lodovico Cassi for the years 1616-1621, with passages written in the first person, perhaps by Lodovico himself. Includes a detailed list of transactions related both to the textile business and trade and receipts from some of the counterparts involved in said transactions. Often includes the name of the customer, the kind of product purchased and the amount received. The accounts mentioned in the ledger that are related to the textile business include transactions with many different workers (including weavers, spinners and dyers) who were paid for their services as well as the purchase of materials and tools. The name of Andrea de' Medici appears throughout the ledger and is referred to as 'mio maggiore', indicating a strong partnership between him and Cassi. Members of other counterparts include members of some of the most important Florentine families, such as the Capponi, the Bardi, the Gherardi, the Albizzi, and the Lapini. In certain cases, while recording a transaction, detailed descriptions of the textile products sold are also present.
