Abstract:

Ledger of credits and debts of the Medici family with Italian and French banks for the years 1609-1611. It consists of a detailed list of debts and credits that various members of the Medici family had with a wide number of counterparts, both in Italy and France: the Medici bank, which was run by members of the family, was one of the most powerful banks in Europe, and it was not uncommon for them to lend and borrow large amounts of money from other banks. These banks were also run by prominent families and the counterparts in the transactions that appear in the ledger are often members of other aristocratic families from Florence, the most important being the Capponi Medici (who also had influence over the Pisan territory), the Acciauoli, the Landi and the Salviati. Also, the names of Francesco, Lorenzo, and Vincenzo de' Medici appear on numerous occasions, and they are presented as both creditors and debtors. From a slip laid in as a supplement to the credits and debts for 1610 it appears that the following branches were also involved: Venice, Rome, Naples, Palermo, Messina, Lyons, Bologna and Ancona. Very large single transactions, many in groups sharing the same settlement date, appear throughout the ledger.
