Abstract:

Ledger of accounts of Vincenzo de' Medici for the years 1603-1606. 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 Albizzi, the Capponi, the Morelli and the Strozzi. Less frequent are other kinds of counterparts, such as employees or tenants of the Vincenzo de' Medici, 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.
