PublisherThe University of Pennsylvania Libraries
Remnant of a notebook of accounts, perhaps belonging to the Medici family, covering the years 1561-1565. Mostly contains very brief annotations and calculations, sometimes including the name of the counterpart involved in the transaction. The names that appear in the notebook include Francesco Concini; Antonio Macario; Giuliano Crusdoni; Filippo Simoni; and an individual simply referred to as Canalino(?). The word tintore, dyer, appears throughout the notebook, perhaps indicating that the transactions are related to the textile business. The present manuscript, whose foliation starts with f. 48, was probably part of a larger volume, now missing.
