Manuscript Summary
This paper manuscript with parchment binding is an exemplar of the category “libri di ricordanze,” which were very popular among Florentine merchants. This “libro di ricordanze” belonged to the Grand Duke of Tuscany; it is probably comprised of the notes (and copies) of a certain Roberto di Pandolfo Pandolfini regarding the management of iron mines on the island of Elba. Included are lists presumably recording the price of iron (ore). — On the island of Elba, abundant deposits of iron ore, characterized by high iron content, were mined and were exported primarily to central Italy. — Following the actual notes, eight smaller-format attachments are pasted in (pp. 52a-d, pp. 54a-d, pp. 56a-b, p. 59, p. 61, pp. 62a-b, p. 65, p. 67), as well as numerous blank pages (pp. 68-288), which make up the main part of the volume. — The manuscript was purchased in Florence in 1957.
