Overdue Charles Darwin book returned to library 122 years late

If you're like me (and you know you want to be) you never get sick of the overdue book stories!
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.
