Ledger of debtors and creditors and accounts of Francesco di Stefano Risaliti for the years 1550-1557. 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. Transactions with Florentine merchants including Pandolfo di Carlo de' Medici (f. 16r) and Giovanbattista Detti (f. 28v) and dyers, including Giovanbattista and Lionardo Salviati (f. 31v) also appear in the ledger.
