Ledger of accounts of the Medici family for the years 1603-1606. It consists of a detailed review of accounts, especially debts of an often unspecified member (or members) of the Medici family with external counterparts or other members of the family. An account review is a (usually yearly) recap of pending debts for counterparts with whom the debtor already has an existing business relationship of some kind. Often includes the name of the counterpart of a given transaction as well as listing the amount of the transactions. The counterparts in the transactions 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 Morelli and the Strozzi. The names of Francesco, Giambattista and Lorenzo de' Medici appear on numerous occasions, and they are presented as both creditors and debtors at different moments.
