PublisherThe University of Pennsylvania Libraries
Ledger of debtors and creditors of Niccolo di Francesco Amadori (whose signet appears on the first page of the manuscript) for the years 1585-1593. 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, the most important being Alessandro Fiorini; Rede, Piero, Baccio and Nicodemo Amadori; Camillo Petrini, Bartolomeo Ricciardi; Gherardo Arrighi; and Filippo Albizzi. Filippo Albizzi in particular appears to have borrowed large sums of money from the Amadori family. The transactions concern for the most part debts or credits between Niccolo Amadori and various members of aristocratic Florentine families, but payments to professionals (including dyers, bakers and carpenters) for their services are not uncommon.
