Abstract: This image is from a collection created by Etta Hanson and given to the College in 1954. All items are from Otto Ege's estate. The leaf was contained and mounted in a mat created by Otto Ege, as were all other leaves in this collection. There is a typed description at the bottom of the mat, which reads: "Geneva: Francois Estienne. An early edition of the French Geneva version, prepared by the ministers of Geneva. For the next two hundred years this versions was regarded as the standard text, and was reprinted many times. The printer, Francis Stephanus (Estienne), was the son of the famous scholar, Robert Stephanus, royal printer to Francis I. Having embraced the reformed religion, Francis Stephanus had to lave Paris. He then went to Geneva, where he printed from 1562-1582."
