Abstract:

Ledger of accounts for the Valdinievole farm, property of Andrea de' Medici, written by Domenico di Giovanni Mongai, farm manager of the estate. It includes very detailed accounts of the everyday transactions that result from the management of the farm: examples of such transactions include the purchase of feed for the animals, or food for the farm manager and his wife, the sales of wine and oil to individuals and other farms, the expenses required to furnish the house or to replace broken pieces of furniture, or those necessary to shoe horses. The author, who writes in the first person, gives also information about donations that he makes to friends of the Medici family when they come and visit the farm, and of the produce that he sends to Andrea de' Medici (typically wine, oil, poultry and eggs).
