THE APOSTLE TO THE CHANNEL ISLANDS

Nouveau Recueil De Cantiques, A L’Usage De La Société Appellée Méthodiste.

Guernsey, J.-A. Chevalier and N. Mauger 1806.

12mo. 526 [r. 544]p.

Stiff paper boards.

The largest Francophone Methodist hymnal to date. It served the Guernsey congregation for the next half century. Queteville composed many of the hymns himself and translated others from Wesley. Chevalier was among the earliest printers on the island. I have located one copy in the U.S. In good condition (soiled), many edges uncut.
