Summary

Ledger of accounts of Vincenzo de' Medici, son of Carlo de' Medici, for the years 1583-1592. Often includes the nature of a given transaction and its amount, as well as listing the names of the individuals that act as counterparts in the transaction. In certain cases the transactions are in kind (examples of the produce used for these payments are chestnuts, grains, cattle feed, cattle, swine) but cash transactions are not uncommon. In spite of the upper cover, which presents the word Possesione, this is not a property ledger, but rather a ledger of accounts regarding the Valdenievole estate, located between Florence and Pistoia. The counterparts in the transactions are often employees or tenants of Vincenzo de' Medici, and as such can pay in kind, or receive in kind payments. Other expenses are related to the management of the properties for the purchase of fertilizers and manure, or cattle, grains, feed and other produce.

Notes

Layout

  • Written in 3 columns with vertical bounding lines in lead; the smaller column on the left with the transaction number or the year in which the transaction took place, the large central column with the transaction and a brief description of it, and the smaller one on the right with its amount in Arabic numerals. In certain cases the large central column contains itemized accounts of a transaction within one entry. In the occurrence of both a debt and a credit with a specific counterpart, credits are usually listed on the left page and debts on the right page of an opening, with the same individuals appearing as debtors or creditors on facing pages.
