Ledger of accounts of Niccolo Amadori for the years 1600-1609. Parts of the memoranda are written by Niccolo Amadori in the first person. Contains detailed records of the transactions related to the use of a financial instrument, probably bills of exchange. A bill of exchange is a written order by one person to his bank to pay the bearer a specific sum on a specific date. Prior to the advent of paper currency, bills of exchange were a common means of exchange. Niccolo Amadori frequently appears to be involved in such transactions both as the writer of bills of exchange and as a receiver of them. The amounts of the transactions that appear in the ledger vary considerably. Among the names of the counterparts mentioned in the manuscript are those of Pandolfo Pandolfini, Lorenzo and Ottavio Ricciardi, Lorenzo and Vincenzo Ricasoli, Vincenzo de' Medici and various members of the Medici Capponi family. A letter, dated 1599, signed by Baccio Tovaglia and addressed to Niccolo Amadori in Piacenza, is laid in the manuscript.
