17th-century copy on paper of a contract from September 14, 1555 regarding the acquisition and sale of property in the Monte Cavallo section of the Quirinal Hill in Rome. Discusses the sale of the Monte Cavallo property belonging to the Archbishop of Taranto Franciscus Columna, also referred to as Francesco Colonna, to Petrus Antonius Bandinus, also referred to as Pierantonio Bandini, in 1450 (f. 1r). Columna had stipulated in the original sale that Petrus Antonius Bandinus and his descendants were to always be the managers of the property. Also mentions the clergymen interested in the property, one of whom was Pope Paul V. The property in question consists primarily of a garden and vineyard, with cottages, and is the same as that in Ms. Codex 1545 and Ms. Codex 1547. Begins with two summaries in Italian (f. 1r-2v). Contains three watermarks throughout: fleur-de-lys (example on f. 23), three hills with the initials G and L (f. 21), and an inverted shield with the initials P and S (f. 22).
