Notebook of memoranda of Andrea Amadori for the years 1522-1537. Parts of it are written by Andrea Amadori in the first person. Most of the memoranda are either detailed descriptions of debts and credits, or inventories of possessions of Andrea Amadori and his family (including son Antonio and daughter Caterina). Debts, credits and similar transactions occur with workers, employees or business counterparts of Andrea Amadori. The circumstances that led to the creation of a debt or credit are carefully described, often with a narrative tone. In some of these transactions the name of Bartolomeo Amadori appears as one of the counterparts. Among the inventories there are detailed lists of clothing and property lists. Two short letters, dated 1606, written by Church official Girolamo Mancini and addressed to Niccolo Amadori, dealing with pending debts, are laid in the manuscript.
