Summary

Notebook of accounts of the heirs of Carlo de' Medici for the year 1581 (the date 1591 appears once (f. 4r), possibly in error, since every other entry concerns the year 1581). The information contained in the notebook, referred to as riscontri, was provided by Quiricho di Jacopo Fanuchi, farmer for the estates of Bravieri and Valdinievole. The manuscript contains short descriptions of transactions related to farm management (e.g. for the purchase of seeds) as well as receipts of small payments, written in the first person, probably in the hand of the payees. The names that appear throughout the notebook are those of the heirs of Carlo de' Medici, and Lorenzo di Filippo Pelamasti(?) and Jacopo Fanuchi, farmers. The cover of the manuscript was made with a 15th-century vellum leaf containing a passage of a theological or legal work, written in a Gothic script, in two columns, and with paragraph marks in red and blue ink.
