Ledger of debtors and creditors of Giovanbattista and Giammaria Detti for the years 1553-1558. Giovanbattista and Giammaria Detti were both members of the Arte della lana, the guild of the lanaioli, merchants who dealt in woolen cloth and cooperated with the other corporations of bankers and merchants in the comune of Florence. The Detti, like other lanaioli, saw all the processes from the raw baled wool through the final cloth, woven at numerous looms scattered in domiciles throughout the city. The ledger reflects their various activities and mentions transactions with many different workers (including weavers, spinners and dyers). 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, the most important being Francesco di Stefano Risaliti; Mariotto d'Ottavio; and Camillo Zanossi.
