Abstract:

Ledger of accounts of the brothers Andrea and Vincenzo de' Medici, sons of Carlo de' Medici (p. 25), for the years 1583-1592. Often includes the nature of a given transaction and its amount, as well as listing the names of the individuals that act as counterparts in the transaction. In certain cases the transactions are in kind (examples of the produce used for these payments are chestnuts, grains, cattle feed, cattle, swine) but cash transactions are not uncommon. In spite of the upper cover, which presents the word Possesione, this is not a property ledger, but rather a ledger of accounts regarding various properties. The counterparts in the transactions are often employees or tenants of the two de' Medici brothers, and as such can pay in kind, or receive in kind payments. Other expenses are related to the management of the properties for the purchase of fertilizers and manure, or cattle, grains, feed and other produce.
