Abstract: If $ \alpha $ is the endomorphism of the disk algebra, $ \mathrm {A}(\mathbb{D})$, induced by composition with a finite Blaschke product $ b$, then the semicrossed product $ \mathrm {A}(\mathbb{D})\times _{\alpha } \mathbb{Z}^+$ imbeds canonically, completely isometrically into $ \mathrm {C}(\mathbb{T})\times _{\alpha } \mathbb{Z}^+$. Hence in the case of a non-constant Blaschke product $ b$, the C*-envelope has the form $ \mathrm {C}(\mathcal {S}_{b}) \times _{s} \mathbb{Z}$, where $ (\mathcal {S}_{b}, s)$ is the solenoid system for $ (\mathbb{T}, b)$. In the case where $ b$ is a constant, the C*-envelope of $ \mathrm {A}(\mathbb{D}) \times _{\alpha } \mathbb{Z}^+$ is strongly Morita equivalent to a crossed product of the form $ \mathrm {C}_0 (\mathcal S_{e})\times _{s} \mathbb{Z}$, where $ e \colon \mathbb{T} \times \mathbb{N} \longrightarrow \mathbb{T} \times \mathbb{N}$ is a suitable map and $ (\mathbb{S}_{e}, s)$ is the solenoid system for $ (\mathbb{T} \times \mathbb{N},\, e)$.
