The "Camerarius / Camerlengus,” or administrator in this case was Lelio Buccapadulio. The register records the payments, receipts, and other information for the celebrations of the Cononici Sancti Petri for the years 1587-1590.

In my interpretation of this binding I included vellum fragments and leaves that show expenses and income for my own private binding "business" that were printed in the Voglare typeface designed by Stephen Farrell and based on a 1601 Florentine manuscript written by an anonymous clerk. More on Volgare.
