Contains information on finances, divisions of estates (divisio bonorum), and other related matters. Includes a list and valuation of real estate properties. Geographical references in the manuscript are to Venice, Verona, and Padua in the Veneto, and to Mantua and Bergamo in Lombardy. Many documents conclude with notarial signets (f. 8v, 9v, 12v, 24r, 27r and 28v). A later table of contents is written on the front endleaf. Written in northern Italy, from 27 January 1540 (f. 1r) to 5 October 1565 (f. 38r), with some additions and emendations that appear to be slightly later in date.
