Rare Book Collection
The Rare Book Collections:
The Rare Book Collections of Saint Mary's College are located in room B26 in the lower level of the library. A 1941 anonymous donation of over 1,000 rare Dante publications added tremendously to an already fine collection which already existed at the College.
Within the Rare Book collection are:
* The Dante Collection: 1,300 books, pamphlets,including copies of "The Divine Comedy" dated 1477 and 1481, and a first edition of "Convivio"
* Virginia Woolf: autographed first editions
* Dali-Rizzoli Bible (illustrated in five volumes)
* John Bannister Tabb poetry collection
*Saint Nicholas Magazine: 1883 - 1898
Contact the reference librarian at (574) 284-5288 if you have questions about the use
of the Rare Book Collection and to make a research appointment.
