„An extremely rare little work, and one of the last products of Henri Estienne’s press, published the year of his death. It consists of a sermon delivered by Guillaume Briçonnet (1470-1534) on 13 October 1519 in Meaux, where he was Bishop. Briçonnet, a close friend of Lefèvre d’Etaples (who dedicated several of his works to him), was a relative through marriage of the great bibliophile Jean Grolier – who married Anne Briçonnet in 1516.“ (Schreiber 32)
