Guillaume Morel

Guillaume Morel (1505-1564), French classical scholar, was born at Tilleul in Normandy.

After acting as proof-reader in a Paris firm, he set up for himself, and subsequently succeeded Turnebus as king's printer in 1555. His most important work was Thesaurus vocum omnium latinarum, containing a number of quotations from Greek authors, taken from hitherto unpublished manuscripts in the Paris library.
