Beginning from an initial flask with two layers green above gold, and proceeding through green, clear, aflask with a little scens of earth and trees, a white bird flying from a layer of white intothe darkness of the upper part of the flask, a flask mottled with red blue, brown and black, Then follows and entirely black flask, a black flask with a red vapour with flowers growing out of the neck, a dark flask with a naked man inside, a dark grey flask with a winged lion or dragon breathing fire, which in the next flask rears up as if trying to leave through the neck of the flask and reveals a skeleton at the bottom of the flask. The next flask number 13 shows us a naked man in a brown flask, in the next a black crow in a black flask, then a white bird in a greyish-black flask, which leads on to a dog or fox leaping in a grey flask. Then we have a mottled red, brown and black flask, which clears to a translucent green with a king in a red robe, and then to another mottled red, brown and black flask this time with flowers growing out of the neck, which becomes in the final figure a translucent reddish brown with a knight in armour standing upon a vitriol symbol and holding a rod.

Drawing 1. A cauldron is placed in a fire to the lower centre of the figure. Two cows look out from the right and left of the drawing. In the steam or grey fume which rises from the cauldron (or curcible?) we see a yellow sun face, an orange star, and a green plant with a red bud. Seven saturn symbols are also seen in the fumes. From an overhanging branch a dog, or some other such animal is suspended in the fumes. It is not clear whether this animal is dead and being roasted or alive.
Drawing 2. Against a blue background of the sky and clouds, we see a snake forming an ourouborus circle. The circular space this defined contains an outpouring of light with rays, and the face of a woman.
Drawing 3. Here the ourobouros snake with the Woman face within the circular space has decsended from the sky onto the earth. From above the Sun and Moon send down beams upon this ourouros snake.
Drawing 4. A mountain with a few trees or vegetation almost fills the frmae of this figure. At the bottom centre is a cave with seven symbols of Jupiter, while another 15 Jupiter symbols circle round the bottom of the mountain.
Drawing 5. In an interior cell with brown rocky walls or perhaps inside the cave, we see a distillation in progress and a red liquid being collected in the receiver.
Drawing 6. Within a circular fume of grey clouds against a blue background of the sky, we see a naked Saturn-Chronos figure with his scythe, and grey beard. Above him are the Sun aand Moon.
A copy of this treatise also of the 18th century is found in the Bibliothéque de Lyon No. 971( 900), where it is entered as 'Jacques Tesson ou Le Tesson. Le grand et excellent Oeuvre de Sages, contenant trois traités ou dialogues; Dialogue du Lyon verd, du grand Thériac, et du Régime'.

[Figure 1. 'Menstrui Praeparatio'. Saturn with scythe, hour-glass and wooden peg leg, confronts a dragon with three heads, each breathing fire. The dragon whose body contains the symbols of the seven planets, stands outside the entrance to its cave. Above in the sky are the Sun and Moon. Below we see a furnace with alembic distilling, and below this again is a waterbath with the flask removed and lying on the ground.
Figure 2. 'Acetum Solvens'. A man with a feathered hat shoots a faling arrow from his bow at a Lion. The blood runs from the Lion's wounded breast onto the ground from which grows a plant with three roses. Above we see a Flask with a red liquid and a lower layer of dark matter.
Figure 3. A Seven pointed star is seen in the sky each point differently coloured. It sends down yellow rays of light upon a Flask with a cover round its neck sitting in a wooden bucket.
Figure 4. Purificatio. Mercurius aquorum. On the left, Mercury in the form of a winged woman carrying a red caduceus steps into a wooden bath, while above her a cerub wind blows down upon her. On the right we wee a furnace with a vessel of water boiling upon it emitting steam. Below is depicted some alchemical distillation apparatus, mounted on a furnace, paralleling the process of purification above.
Figure 5. A three headed serpent (one white, another red and the other yellow) emerges on the bank of a lake. The yellow head is seen in the act of devouring a small winged dragon. Reference is made to a texts from Genesis chapter 1 'Producant aquae reptile animae viventis'. Below is seen a distillation apparatus with three flasks one with a white, another with a yellow and the third with a red liquid.
Figure 6. A young man is in the act of whipping a naked woman rushing away to the left. On her head is the sign for venus, and in her hand she holds a flaming heart pierced with an arrow.
The young man holds fast by the wrist another figure clothed with the sign for vitriol on (his or her head). Below we see a flask set on a furnace. It has a cover upon it with holes through which a steam or fume escapes. Beside it the flask is placed in a wooden bucket of water. Below we see an alembic and collecting vessel.]
