Ledger of accounts of an unidentified member of the Medici family for the years 1540-1541. 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. Among the names that appear throughout the ledger and who act as counterparts in the transactions, the most frequent are Carlo and Alamanno de' Medici; Alessandro Antinori; Carlo Capponi; Carlo and Simone Renzoni; Francesco and Pandolfo Rucellai; Tommaso Martelli; Iacopo Guicciardini; Guglielmo Ubaldini; and Tommaso Cavalcanti. Transactions are sometimes related to the sale of textile products, or to payments for produce or rent, as well as small debts and credits. Most of the individuals who appear in the ledger are members of different Florentine aristocratic families who worked for the Medici as diplomats or statesmen, but who also often acted as business counterparts.
