[Ledger of Serantoni accounts]; [manuscript].

Title:
[Ledger of Serantoni accounts] [manuscript].
Abstract:
Ledger of accounts, debtors and creditors of Giuseppe Serantoni (referred to as cincagliere), a merchant specializing in the sale of luxury household and personal accessories, including textile products, semi-precious jewelry, glassware, miniatures, furs and ornaments. Often includes the nature of a given credit or debt and its amount, as well as listing the names of the individuals that hold the debt or credit, the most important being the princess Violante Beatrix of Bavaria, wife of Ferdinando de' Medici; Lorenzo de' Medici; Alessandro Strozzi; Antonio Spinelli; Cosimo Venturi; Francesco Frescobaldi; Antonio Gherardi; Giovanbattista Ricci; Bernardo Rucellai; Luca Antonio Morandini; Giovanbattista Alamanni; and others. Most of the counterparts are members of the Florentine aristocracy or merchants themselves, who often purchased accessories from Serantoni and paid him at a later date, which resulted in debts. The items sold by Serantoni are all described in great detail, and the price for each item is also indicated.
