Sesuyt le debat de l'home et de la femme; avec une ioyeuse medecie pour les dentz.

Paris, circa 1520.

The last of the three poems in this collection may not be by Guillaume Alexis. It may be translated as "A joyful medicine for the teeth". Assuming that it was printed about 1520, it is the first printed text on dental health, and the first ever reference to dentistry in a printed book title. The only institutional copies recorded are in the British Library and the Bibliothèque nationale de France.
