Written in Italy (probably either Florence or Terranuova Bracciolini, Arezzo) between 1646 (f. 1v) and 1649 (f. 35r).


Ledger of accounts of the inheritance of Leonora Concini marchesa di Monte, daughter of Giovanbattista Concini, for the years 1646-1649, probably written by Leonora's sister, Camilla Concini Medici. Often includes the nature of a payment received or disbursed and its amount, as well as listing the names of the individuals that act as counterparts in the transactions. The first part of the ledger (f. 1v-6v) contains the payment received, and the second part (f. 20r-35v) contains the payments disbursed. Most of the transactions are, however, related to the large estate left by Leonora, containing liquid funds, real property, and valuable objects (some of which are sold); the estate of the marchesa included at least one house in Florence, and one outside the city, in San Giovanni Valdarno, and a part of the furniture and the works of art found therein are also sold. Credits owed by Florentine noblemen (including members of the Salviati and Capponi families and the Monte di Pietà and the Monte del Sale, both lending institutions of Florence) are settled with the heirs of Leonora. Likewise, unresolved debts with various counterparts are paid with some of the revenues derived from the inheritance. Salaries of employees and workers of Leonora (including a maid and various farmers) that were left unpaid at the time of her death were also paid with the aforementioned inheritance. A small number of debts with members of the Concini family, including Camilla herself and her sister Lucrezia, are also present in the ledger and settled. 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.
