1st edition. "Dr Ogier's study of events in Guernsey between 1540 and 1640 explores changes which took place on the island as Catholicism was replaced by Calvinism, imposed by a series of commissions appointed by the English government during the reign of Eliizabeth. ...the islands old elite contrived to retain control, with consequent financial benefits to themselves, but at the cost of failure of the Calvinist dream and increased cultural differentiation in island society." Pp.xvi/223, 2 maps. Black cloth, dustwrapper. VG/VG.
