Contents

Includes several charts schematising the relationships and correspondences between mythical figures (ff. 35r, 41r, 79r, 133r-134r, 216v, 218r). Many of the sheets had previously been used for notes on other subjects, including (f. 34r) an undated draft letter [2 May 1693? to Fatio de Duillier?] (NC, 7: 367) and a list of alchemical titles (f. 105r).
