First edition of this translation, printed for the use of ‘toutes les Eglisses Paroissiales & dans les Chapelles de Isles de Jersey, Guernsey, & autres Isles adjacentes’, as well as for the French congregation at the Savoy in London.

The Jersey-born John Durel (1625-1683), established a French Anglican congregation at the Savoy (the residence of the Bishop of London) with royal approval in 1661. He immediately organised a reprinting of Pierre Delaune’s 1616 French translation of the Book of Common Prayer, and in 1662 was granted a monopoly on its printing (here the approbations include one from Durel granting Octavius Pulleyn permission to print). ‘A revised text, completed before 1665, retained much of Delaune’s original, but incorporated changes embodied in the Act of Uniformity and Durel’s translation of the Thirty-Nine Articles; it was published eight times between 1666 and 1695’ (Oxford DNB).
