Ledger of accounts of an unidentified member of the Medici family for the years 1594-1637. It includes a detailed list of the transactions which took place in some of the farms of the Medici estate (including Castagnuolo and Marciolla) and the revenues derived from selling produce and harvests. Data on the production and sale of oil and wine appear frequently. Produce details (different kinds of wheat or olives, or variants of beans) and sowing techniques used (with or without using oxen) are also noted. Small debts and credits between the owner (or owners) of the estates and employees are also present, and often workers paid their debts in kind.
