Ledger of accounts of an unidentified member of the Medici family for the years 1544-1545. 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, Agostino, and Francesco de' Medici; Bernardo Ricasoli; Ferdinando and Piero Salviati; Francesco and Mariotto Rucellai; Guglielmo Capponi; Alessandro Antinori; Bartolomeo Gondi; and Bernardo Buonaccorsi. Transactions are sometimes related 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. Notes, dated 1544, contain a list of names of more debtors and the amount they owe.
