Miscellany of essays, legal documents and proceedings concerning the affairs of various members of the Arrigucci family, covering the years 1492-1602. The first document is an historical essay on the trial between Giovanni d'Andrea and Piero d'Andrea Arrigucci and the Buondelmonte (also spelled Bondelmonte) family, held in front of the Capitani di parte, a Florentine magistracy whose jurisdiction covered public works, festivals and real estate. In 1540, the Buondelmonte sold the Arrigucci a house and two shops in central Florence, in return for a partial payment in cash, and the right of usufruct of the properties until the debt was paid in full. The Arrigucci, however, did not respect the terms established by the sale contract, and were sued by the Buondelmonte, represented by Piero Buondelmonte. The trial lasted until 1602, with various appeals and mixed results for both parts. In the end, however, the Buondelmonte were forced to complete the transaction with the Arrigucci. The second document deals with a petition involving Marietta (also spelled Mariuccia) Arrigucci, Johannes (formerly known as Andreas), and Francisco Arrigucci, including inheritances, titles and debts. The third is a declaration for Giovanni Arrigucci, regarding a lease. The fourth is a statement of acquisition regarding Andrea Arrigucci and Francesci de Sangellatti, as well as a Hyeronimus de Guidanis(?), and discusses the legitimation of claims on property. The fifth document discusses holdings in Florence and primary decrees regarding Dianore, the wife of Giovanni Arrigucci. The sixth and the seventh documents consist of two petitions, filed by Luigi Arrigucci for Alessandro Pontigiani, for the suspension of the trial in which Pontigiani was involved. The eighth document contains a description of the suit between Andreas Arrigucci and the Florentine lawyer Francesco Mainardi, concerning the dowry of Andreas' daughter, Caterina. The ninth document is a suit from Giovanni Arrigucci against Petrus de Portigianis regarding the sale of property, with Florentine lawyer Bernardus Heretus. The tenth document describes a lengthy suit regarding two sons of Johannes, or Giovanni, Arrigucci.
