Abstract:

Ledger of accounts of Ludovico Giraldi and Vincenzo de' Medici for the years 1563-1569. Ludovico and Vincenzo were both members of the guild of the lanaioli, merchants who dealt in woolen cloth and cooperated with the other corporations of bankers and merchants in the comune of Florence. Like other lanaioli, they saw all the processes from the raw baled wool through the final cloth, and the present manuscript reflects their various activities. Most of the counterparts were other textile merchants, dyers, tailors, or members of the guild. Thus, the transactions recorded in the ledger are, for the most part debts, credits or expenses related to the purchase of wool, cloth or semi-finished textile goods, as well as salary payments made to various members of the guild. The business counterparts of Vincenzo and Ludovico that appear in the ledger include members of the most prestigious Florentine families, such as Guglielmo degli Albizzi, Filippo Salviati, Giovanbattista Detti, Alessandro de' Medici, Federigo de' Ricci, and Pancrazio Rucellai. Among the names of the workers that appear in the ledger, the ones that recur more frequently are those of Piero Baldocci; Filippo Marinuggi; Francesco and Lorenzo Corsini; Luca Salvucci; and Giovanni Buontalenti. A very small number of transactions with other artisans such as shoe- and hat-makers, whose activities were only marginally related to those of the lanaioli, are also present.
