PublisherThe University of Pennsylvania Libraries
Ledger of accounts of Leonora Concini marchesa di Monte, daughter of Giovanbattista Concini, for the years 1643-1646. 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 Leonora Concini, and the employees that appear throughout the ledger include two coachmen, who are paid for their services and for the care of horses and mules; various women who cooked and helped with housework; local businessmen such as bakers and tailors; and both friars and nuns from whom Leonora and her family purchased small amounts of textile products. The present manuscript is smaller than the size of the original volume either covered by or planned for its binding and some leaves appear to be missing.
