1. The investments from time to time representing the endowment given in January 1666–67 by deed of gift by Tobias Rustat shall constitute a trust fund called the Rustat Fund.

2. The income of the fund shall be used for the purchase of books and manuscripts for the University Library.

3. Any books bought out of the said income shall be impressed with the Rustat arms, unless on account of the nature of the book this course is undesirable.

4. The University may make regulations as to the persons by whose advice purchases are to be made, as to the conditions under which books or manuscripts purchased may be taken out of the Library, and otherwise as to the administration of the fund.
