Ledger of memoranda of Andrea di Lorenzo Amadori for the years 1552-1566. Parts of it are written by Andrea Amadori in the first person. Often includes a detailed description of a given credit or debt and its amount, as well as listing the names of the individuals that hold the debt or credit, the most important being Jacopo Girolami, Francesco Amadori, Pasquale di Benedetto Bonechi, Girolamo Brizzi and Leonardo Santini. Small transactions concerning the sale or purchase of household accessories and pieces of furniture and textile products are also present, together with short inventories of said products. The inventories, however succinct, are very detailed as different types of linens and their uses are listed, together with wool products and their uses. In certain cases the counterparts in the transactions write a receipt (after receiving either cash or products) on the manuscript and sign and date it. Some of the names that appear are those of Matteo di Tommaso, Francesco Bonini and Leonardo Santini. In other cases Andrea Amadori writes receipts of either money or products (usually textile products) in a narrative tone.
