Overdue Charles Darwin book returned to library 122 years late
A stamp inside the first edition copy showed that the book had been borrowed more than a century ago, on January 30, 1889.

Investigations have found that the book had been in a private collection for 50 years before being handed to a local university, whose employees passed it back to the library.
