PublisherThe University of Pennsylvania Libraries
Ledger of accounts of Lodovico Cassi for the years 1621-1625. Often includes the amount of a given credit or debt as well as listing the names of the individuals that act as counterparts in the transactions. Among the names that appear throughout the ledger are Andrea de' Medici; Bartolomeo and Giovanbattista Fabbioni; Benedetto Galilei; Lorenzo and Cesare Cardini; Bartolomeo Comparini; and Ugo della Stufa. Although it is not clear whether Lodovico Cassi is a member of the guild of the lanaioli, or wool merchants, most of the transactions that appear in the ledger are related to wool manufacturing: it appears that he and his counterparts exchanged variable quantities of unfinished wool products at different stages of the manufacturing process, and, in certain cases, finished products were also sold. Andrea de' Medici appears to be one of most important counterparts in such transactions, given the very large amount of both finished and unfinished products which were exchanged between him and Lodovico Cassi (for example, see f.1-4).
