The T.F. Torrance Collection of Antiquarian Books forms part of a large collection of books from the library of Thomas F. Torrance. The collection was donated to Princeton Theological Seminary by his son, Iain R. Torrance, the sixth president of that institution. It reflects the wide theological, scientific and historical interests of T. F. Torrance, including over 400 rare and antiquarian volumes published before 1800 relating to the history of Christianity in Scotland. Many of those volumes are presented here in digital form.
