PublisherThe University of Pennsylvania Libraries
Ledger of debtors and creditors of Andrea and Lorenzo di Francesco Amadori for the years 1515-1548. 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 there are Francesco Amadori, Biagio and Leonardo Raglini, Giovanni Dalfano . 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 and carpenters) for their services are not uncommon. There are also many transactions between Andrea and Lorenzo Amadori and their employees: in these cases the former often pay in cash, whereas the latter tend to pay in kind. A small number of transactions record the purchase of farm tools and products (feed, fertilizer). In certain cases there are notes on the production of oil and wine for single farms. Memoranda consist of more detailed descriptions of the circumstances that led to the creation of a debt or credit.
