Ledger of debtors and creditors of Andrea di Lorenzo Amadori for the years 1522-1528. 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 Lorenzo and Jacopo Magniano, Lorenzo di Enzo da Gonnella and Giovanni Ridolfo. The transactions concern small debts or credits between Andrea Amadori and various counterparts, but payments to professionals (including dyers, bakers and carpenters) for their services are not uncommon. There are also many transactions between Andrea Amadori and his employees: in these cases the former often pays in cash, whereas the latter tend to pay in kind.
