The Saint John's College Rare Book Collection is housed in the Rare Book Vault, & contains, among many fine bibles, religious and missionary texts, one of only five known copies of Tudeschi's ca. 1438 manuscript Lectura in Decretales, and one of the earliest incunabula in the UMA collections:, namely, Koberger's 1478 edition of a Biblia Latina, depicted here.
