Ledger of accounts of Carlo de' Medici for the years 1546-1570 written by Piero de Ricci. 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, as well as the date in which payments are due. Transactions are sometimes related to payments for produce or rent, as well as small debts and credits between Carlo de' Medici and his employees. The memoranda contain more information regarding individual debts and credits, such as the circumstances that lead to the debt or credit. Sometimes information about purchases of farm or household equipment is also recorded, as well as the prices of the products, why they were purchased and who was the counterpart in the transaction.
