Dear Sir(s),

A weak version of this theory but enough to prove Con(ZF)
is the following:

EXPOSITION: T' is a theory in FOL(=,e) with the following axioms: 

Def.) elm(x):= [y](x e y) 
Def.) trs(x):= (y)(y e x -> y c x)

I. Construction: if phi is a formula in which x is not free, then 
([!x](y)(y e x <-> elm(y) & phi)) is an axiom. 

II. Relations: (a)(b)(x)((y)(y e x -> y=a ? y=b) -> elm(x)) 

Def.) x < y:= [f](f:x-->y & f is injection)
Def.) U(x)=y <-> (z)(z e y <-> [m](m e x & z e m)) 

III. Size axioms: 

(x)(y)(elm(x) & y < x -> elm(y)) 
(x)(y)(elm(x) & trs(y) & (z)(z e y -> z < U(x)) -> elm(y))
