Ledger of debtors and creditors of an unidentified member of the Medici family for the years 1557-1572. The transactions recorded in the ledger usually concern harvests or revenues derived from the sale of harvests. For most occurrences, the amount of the transaction (either the value of the harvest or the revenue from the sale of a harvest or percentages of it) is recorded. In certain cases, the name of the harvester is also present. Sometimes debts are settled in cash, but more often they are paid in kind (oil, wheat, wine, millet). A note, dated 1568, laid in the manuscript contains itemized accounts of transactions related to the sale of textile products.
