Custodial history

Many bibles, service books, and published items formed part of the SPCA backlog and are included in this collection. Other publications will be added to this collection as appropriate, in keeping with the St. Peter's collections policy for publication, which limits publications primarily to works related to or having a direction connection to the church or its members.

Scope and content

This collection consists of bibles, service books and other published items selected as special collections, primarily because they were acquired and/or used by St. Peter's Cathedral Church over the years. The selection will be reviewed periodically and items added or removed as new information is received related to their provenance and relationship to the church.
