Ledger of accounts for the Priory of San Jacopo, located in Piano di Radici, Terranuova Bracciolini, Arezzo, property of Arrigo Concini, written by Vergilio di Giorgio Casini da Tirli, farm manager of the estate. It includes very detailed accounts on the everyday transactions that result from the management of the farm, such as the purchase of feed for the animals, the sales of wine and oil to individuals and other farms, the expenses required to furnish the house or to replace broken pieces of furniture, or those necessary to shoe or medicate horses. The author also gives information about donations made to friends of the Concini family when they come and visit the farm, and of the produce that he sends to the Concini family house in Florence (typically wine, oil, poultry and eggs).
