Ledger of miscellaneous accounts of Andrea di Lorenzo Amadori for the years 1556-1566. The name of Andrea appears only on the first page of the manuscript; there are, however, a few paragraphs written in the first person and not signed, perhaps written by Andrea Amadori. The ledger contains a variety of debts and credits including the sale or purchase of textile products (different kinds of linens), household accessories and produce (eggs, onions, spinach, rosemary plants and lettuce); and payment of salaries to workers. The name of Francesco di Andrea Amadori appears frequently throughout the ledger; other names present in the book are Giuliano and Raffaello Girolami, Camillo del Luca, Alessandro Bettini, Mario Feroni, and a woman called Maddalena, who is identified as the nanny of the Amadori family. Another expense mentioned in the ledger was the tax on grinding (gabella della macinatura), which had to be paid weekly to the Comune.
