Ledger of debtors and creditors and accounts related to the estate of Arrigo Concini for the years 1631-1638. 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 of the counterparts in the transactions are workers and servants of Arrigo Concini and the names that appear throughout the ledger include Vergilio Casini and Benedetto Bonechi (both farmers); Francesco Gilardini; Giovanbattista Giannetti; Filippo Fabbrini; and Tommaso Biliotti. A small number of accounts relative to purchases of Arrigo Concini and his family (including textile products for personal use and for resale and women's jewelry) are also present and scattered throughout the ledger. Arrigo Concini died in 1631, leaving a number of outstanding debts with Florentine banks to his heirs. However, most of them appeared to be wiped out or significantly reduced (f. 286v).
