    The HBS Medici Collection: Understanding the History of Renaissance Business

     
    Sponsored by Harvard Business School and the Faculty of Arts and Sciences at Harvard University
     
     
    Baker Library at Harvard Business School holds the largest collection of Renaissance Florentine account books outside Italy. The Medici Collection, which comprises more than 150 ledgers and other manuscript volumes, sheds extraordinary light on the business and personal activities of six generations of one branch of Florence's Medici family, and it contains an abundance of unique materials from the late 14th to the early 18th century, with the vast bulk dating from 1400 to 1600. These lectures and workshops explored the richness and potential for research of the Medici Collection.
