Summary

Notebook of memoranda and inventories of the assets and properties of a large estate called L'Agliata, owned by the Medici family, for the years 1499-1500. The estate, probably located between Livorno and Volterra, consisted of 20 houses (referred to as poderi), each with its own land and, often, stables. For every podere, a brief description of its most relevant physical features is given, as well as estimate of its value, the value of the land attached to it, and what was grown on that land at the time the inventory was composed. In certain cases, information about the amount of cattle belonging to each podere is also present. Short notes and commentaries on how to improve the current situation and production of the properties are also quite common. At the end of the first section (f.11r), there is a list of locations close to L'Agliata and, for each location, an estimated distance (perhaps in Florentine miles) from them to the podere is given. The second section contains a very concise and likely partial inventory of the movable possessions that could be found in the estate. In spite of its brevity, this inventory is not limited to large pieces of household properties, but also includes kitchen, garden and farm equipment and instruments, as well as personal accessories and ornaments. The entries were almost entirely written in 1499, but many of them contain additions dated 1500 in the same hand and ink.
