PublisherThe University of Pennsylvania Libraries
An account book of an unidentified merchant who traded in wheat, rye, and wine. Prices of various transactions are recorded in the margins. Most of the entries are from the years 1492 and 1493. The merchant was also involved in the repair of mills in the areas of Labastide-Beauvoir, Montgiscard, Villefranche, Caraman, Haute-Garonne, and other areas southeast of Toulouse. This section contains the location name, followed by a table of personal names and prices next to them, possibly designating sums owed to the unknown merchant. The records of mill repairs appear at the end of the codex (f. 47r-53v). There are several blank pages in the middle (f. 10v-12v and f. 40v-46r) and at the end of the codex (f. 54r-59v).
