The Douay-Rheims Bible was published by the English College at Rheims in two stages, first the NT in 1582, and later the OT in 1609; with later revisions done by Bishop Richard Challoner in 1749-1752. Rather than a translation from the
original languages the Douay-Rheims is a literal translation of the
Latin Vulgate, which was declared the only official version of the Catholic Church in 1546, and represents the first translation of the Bible into english. Being a Catholic version, it generally includes the the seven Deutero-Canonical
books (also known as the Apocrypha).
