Ledger book kept by Francisco Ignacio de Iraeta between 1760 and 1783 of his commercial affairs. The ledger contains a listing, alphabetically by first name, of Iraeta's various clients, as well as detailed ongoing records of his business transactions with them. Running accounts of the quantities and prices of goods/products sold to and for this individual are supplemented by individual records of Iraeta's large, single purchases of good (to be resold). There are also records of Iraeta's accounts with relatives, in particular one of his expenditures on a nephew's education in Mexico (Josef Igancio de Iturbe). A few notations were made on certain accounts considerably later, in 1808-09 by Gabriel de Iturbe. In addition, the ledger book contains a few loose business letters and accounts dating from 1770. (Bound in leather, with some original ledger sheets included in plastic sleeves.)
