Ledger of accounts of Francesco Davanzati for the years 1555-1560. Often includes the nature of a given transaction and the counterparts involved. Most of the expenses that appear in the ledger are related to household management (purchase of food, drink, furniture and linen) or to the payment of the wages of employees of Francesco Davanzati (including carpenters, builders and farmers). Revenues are mostly related to the sale of wheat, grains and wood produced in the Davanzati estate. Small debts and credits with private individuals who are not members of any famous family appear throughout the ledger.
