Bloomington, Indiana University, Bloomington, Lilly Library at Indiana University,  Medieval and Renaissance 46
Description: ff. 150 - All blank leaves. - Bound in sixteenth-century limp parchment wrappers with fold-over flap, 5 tawed leather straps laced around the outside of the spine, the central strap extending to wrap right around the binding to a metal buckle at the center of the upper cover. - Part of the archive of Raffaello de’ Medici (1543-1628), of Florence; sale at Reiss & Sohn, Königstein, 21 October 2003, lot 647; bought by the Lilly Library from Quaritch, February 2004.
Notes:-The volume was formerly a ledger in the vast sixteenth-century archives of the Medici family of Florence and it is a fine example of what are known as ‘account-book’ bindings; evidently only a few dozen pages were actually used, and these have now been removed.
