PublisherThe University of Pennsylvania Libraries
Ledger of debtors and creditors of Andrea di Lorenzo Amadori for the years 1506-1514. 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 are Bartolomeo and Elisabetta Amadori, Francesco di Giovanni Ruspoli and Francesco di Mauro. The transactions concern small debts or credits between Andrea Amadori and various counterparts, including other members of the Amadori family, but payments to professionals (including dyers, bakers, carpenters) for their services are not uncommon. Memoranda consist of more detailed descriptions of the circumstances that led to the creation of a debt or credit. Sometimes the name of the notary public or lawyer who was involved in the more complicated transactions is also present.
