Ledger of miscellaneous accounts of Arrigo Concini for the years 1629-1631. Accounts are mostly related to the farms Il Ponticino and La Croce, located outside Florence, property of Arrigo Concini. The ledger contains very detailed accounts of the everyday transactions that result from the management of the farms, including the purchase of feed for the animals (including hay and acorns); the sales of wine and oil to individuals and other farms; and an accurate record of births and deaths of farm animals and their value, should they be sold. There are also accounts related to the very diversified production of the farms, which included wine and oil; beans (fava, cicerchie, lupini and borlotti); cereal (wheat, barley, and flax-seed); meat and cheese (swine, chickens, pigeons, beef, veal, lambs, sheep and sheep's cheese) and assorted produce (fresh fruit, vegetables, and dried figs). Accounts concerning the payment of the workers and servants of Arrigo Concini who worked in his farms are also present and the names that appear throughout the ledger include Vergilio Casini and Benedetto Bonechi (both farmers); Bartolo Rossi; Carlo Cennini; Andrea Canerini; Giulio Boldrini; Filippo Fabbrini; and Bernardo Giuliani. Workers and farmers were often paid in kind (mostly with animals and produce). Miscellaneous accounts related the sale or purchase of textile products, including wool and house linens, and to the inheritance left to the family by Bartolomeo Concini (who died in 1578), are also present.
