Academie Francaise Dictionary

In The Story of French I read something the authors state which surprised me: that since 1635 (the year it came into existance), the Academie Francais has never recognized the word "anglais" ("Engish [language]") as an official word, that it has never been put in their officially published dictionaries.

Can somebody confirm or deny this to me?
