WRAL Features Wilson Library’s Durant Bible

The North Carolina Collection in UNC’s Wilson Special Collections Library is home to the Durant Bible. The volume was published in London in 1599 and brought to America by the Durant family in 1658. Most recently, it was used for the installations of Chancellor Carol Folt and UNC System President Margaret Spellings.

The Durant Bible “represents the introduction of print into the state,” North Carolina Collection curator Bob Anthony tells WRAL. Watch to learn more:
