The Princeton University Library has added another rare book to its collection — thanks to the Friends of the Princeton University Library, which made a gift in honor of outgoing President Shirley Tilghman on June 20. The book was owned by the first president of the College of New Jersey, Jonathan Dickinson. The text, Tactica Sacra (translated from the Latin into English: Sacred Strategies), by John Arrowsmith, is a “manual for the spiritual warrior.”
