Ledger of debtors and creditors of Francesco di Stefano Risaliti for the years 1554-1565. 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. Most transactions appear to be with employees who operate in the wool and textile industry (especially dyers and spinners) who are paid for their services; but transactions with various workers (farmers, carpenters, builders) are also present. Other transactions are related to the purchase of dyeing materials and tools. When recording accounts related to wool manufacturing, detailed descriptions of said processes are often given, with lists of different dyes and fabric types.
