Ledger of accounts of Luigi and Alamanno de' Medici, for the years 1495-1544. Includes a detailed description of income and expenses which he incurred to manage his household. Also includes accounts of loans to members of aristocratic Florentine families, such as the Risaliti, the Salviati and the Strozzi; and accounts of small sales of textile products for private use. The accounts are kept using a single entry bookkeeping system. The book is mostly written by Luigi de' Medici himself, who signs numerous pages, but there are passages written by his son Alamanno, who took over his father's accounts once he died, in 1530.
