|The Rare Book Collection contains over 1,570 monographs, including editions of the Bible, biblical commentaries, theological works, Anglicana, Episcopal Church history, and editions of the Book of Common Prayer. The collection ranges in date from a 15th century manuscript to a 1995 limited edition printing, although the bulk of the collection consists of eighteenth-century material. The languages represented include English, Latin, German, Greek, and Hebrew. |

We are very grateful for those who have donated books to the rare book collection, such as The Rev. Roger Holloway. Mr. Holloway donated two editions of the 1662 Book of Common Prayer, a 1604 edition of the Constitutions and Canons Ecclesiasticall from the Church of England, and a collection of 17th century Anglicana.
