    This presentation highlights some treasures of Princeton Seminary’s Wright Library: Manuscripts of a 12th century Greek Gospel Lectionary and of a lovely 16th century Schwenckfelder sermon collection, an early 1540 print of the Zurich Bible and a reprint of the 1534 Luther Bible owned by Dietrich Bonhoeffer, a copy of the first printed edition of the biblical Glossa Ordinaria 1480/81 in four volumes, and a 1542 volume of Heinrich Bullinger’s Gospel commentaries. It closes by discussing the strange fate of a 1528 Erasmus edition of Augustine’s writings with a large trove of contemporary handwritten marginalia which was offered to the Seminary for a price of 1 Million Dollars.
