Abstract:

Ledger of debtors and creditors and memoranda of Vincenzo and Andrea de' Medici (f. 83r) for the years 1595-1603. Often includes the nature of a given credit or debt and its amount, as well as listing the names of the individuals that hold the debt or credit. Transactions are usually related to small purchases of textile products (especially wool), farm products (wine, oil) or to the payment of the wages of workers and servants. Transactions concerning farm management also appear and they are frequently related to the care of horses or land. In certain cases, there are mentions of sales of real estate. Most of the counterparts in the transactions are either employees or servants of Vincenzo and Andrea de' Medici, but the names of Filippo Salviati and Filippo d'Alamanno de' Medici, members of the Florentine aristocracy and relatives of Andrea and Vincenzo, appear throughout the ledger. A letter laid in the manuscript, dated 1605, and addressed to Vincenzo de' Medici, expresses concern for the deteriorating health of the Pope, Leo XI (formerly Alessandro de' Medici). It appears to be written by a friend of the Medici family, Camillo Salimbeni.
