Ledger of debtors and creditors and miscellaneous accounts related to the management of the estate attached to the Priory of San Jacopo, located in Piano di Radici, Terranuova Bracciolini, Arezzo, property of Bartolomeo Concini, for the years 1628-1633. Most of the accounts that appear in the ledger are related to the very diversified production of the estate. It included wine and oil; beans (fava, cicerchie, lupini and borlotti); cereal (wheat, vetch, and flax-seed); meat and cheese (swine, chickens, pigeons, beef, veal, and lambs) and assorted produce (fresh fruit, vegetables, and dried figs). The goods were sold or exchanged and part of the production was used for the compensation of workers. Debtors and creditors are either workers or farmers of San Jacopo, or business counterparts of the Concini family. There are also records of the rent that farmers paid to Bartolomeo to use his land, and it was usually partly in kind. A small number of expenses related to farm management (including material for repairs, farming tools, and horse care and medication) are also present. A note concerning a visit of Filippo Gondi, perhaps a family friend, is laid in the manuscript.
