PublisherThe University of Pennsylvania Libraries
Ledger of debtors and creditors of a brother of Alamanno de' Medici, whose name is not mentioned, for the years 1535-1544. Written by Francesco di Domenico di Nanni, who signed it repeatedly and on numerous pages, this ledger often includes the nature of a given credit or debt and its amount, as well as listing the names of the individuals that hold the debt or credit; it also lists various other expenses. Debtors and creditors are usually either tenants or employees of the brother of Alamanno de' Medici; expenses usually concern different aspects of farm management (including the sale or purchase of cattle, swine, feed and wheat). There are a few occurrences of money exchanges between Alamanno de' Medici and his brother. Foliation suggests that this was part of a larger manuscript.
