Abstract:

Ledger of accounts of the brothers Andrea and Vincenzo de' Medici, sons of Carlo de' Medici, for the years 1597-1605. 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. The counterparts in the transactions are often members of other aristocratic families from Florence, the most important being the Capponi, the Morelli, the Salviati, as well as the Landi, from Piacenza; in certain cases prestigious Florentine institutions, such as the Ordine dei frati di Santa Croce, also appear. Less frequent are other kinds of counterparts, such as employees or tenants of the two de' Medici brothers, who can pay in kind, or receive in kind payments. The memoranda, more detailed descriptions of the aforementioned transactions, with descriptions of the events which lead to a debt or a credit, are scattered throughout the accounts.
