Ledger of debtors and creditors and miscellaneous accounts of Federico Gondi for the years 1533-1535, at least partially written by Simone Gondi. Often includes the nature of a given debt or credit or other transaction, as well as listing the name of the individual who hold the debt or credit or who acts as counterpart in the transaction. Many transactions appear to concern the purchase of small art pieces, referred in the manuscript as formelle, from different artisans. Some the names that appear frequently in the ledger are those of Lorenzo Filippi, Lorenzo Manelli and Raffaello Damancore. They appear to be involved in the production of the farm referred to in the text as podere del Mugnale. Brief descriptions and accounts of said production (including data regarding the yearly production of wine, oil and grains) are also present. More farms and their respective accounts are also mentioned, although not as frequently. The cover of the manuscript is made from a vellum fragment of a 14th-century liturgical manuscript, with text written in two columns with red and blue initials and in a Gothic script.
