Ledger of accounts of Ottavia Gondi, concerning her share of inheritance from her father, Federigo Gondi, for the years 1692-1694. At his death, Federigo Gondi left to his heirs a considerable estate, but also a number of debts. The ledger contains itemized accounts of both expenses and revenues that were left to Ottavia by her father. Most of the estate described consists of farms and their related movable goods, and Ottavia's shares of each are evaluated for accounting purposes, and the farmers in charge of each property appear to have provided the estimate. Ottavia's inheritance is therefore composed of a share of the value of the farms themselves, as well as a percentage of the revenues generated by the sale of produce from each farm. Outstanding debts are also related to the management of the farms and they include small payments for salaries and other services provided by farmers or farm managers (referred to as fattori). Included are the names of the fattori, the most important being Giovan Francesco Camerlenghi, who was in charge of a large part of the estate of Federigo before his death.
