PublisherThe University of Pennsylvania Libraries
Ledger of debtors and creditors and miscellaneous accounts of Filippo Gondi for the years 1652-1669. Often includes the nature of a given debt or credit or other transaction, as well as listing the name of the individual who holds the debt or credit or who acts as counterpart in the transaction. Some of the names that appear throughout the ledger are those of Francesco and Filippo Mancelli, Francesca Cellini, and Arcangelo Masini. Many transactions concern the sale or purchase of textile products, as well as the payment of the salaries of those who worked with or for Filippo Gondi in the manufacturing of textile products. Some debts and credits are related to the sale of cheese (probably sheep's cheese, simply referred to as cacio), produced on an unidentified farm owned by Filippo Gondi, or to the payment for the purchase of spices from spice merchants, referred to as speziali. Other small transactions and accounts related to various aspects of farm management are also present (including the sale, purchase, or exchange of lambs, cattle and farm tools).
