Ledger of debtors and creditors of Francesco di Stefano Risaliti for the years 1559-1566. 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. Many 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 debts and credits between Francesco di Stefano Risaliti and business counterparts and members of the Florentine aristocracy, the most important being Luca Salvucci; Jacopo Amatucci; Antonio Risaliti; and Filippo Salviati. Some of these transactions appear to be loans of money to finance the development of textile businesses. The back flyleaf is a vellum leaf from a mid-12th-century manuscript from Italy, and is written in a Gothic script. It contains a passage from a Latin commentary on Paul's Epistle to the Thessalonians, with the quotations from the epistle in red ink.
