Today, 7th November, is the 53rd anniversary of the world’s most overdue library book being returned. Borrowed in 1823 from The Medical College of Ohio It was ultimately returned to the University of Cincinnati. The university waived the calculated late fee of $2,646. However, this record was subsequently broken and it is now considered that the record is for a book in German on the Archbishop of Bremen, published in 1609. It was borrowed from Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge by Colonel Robert Walpole in 1667–68. Prof. Sir John Plumb found the book 288 years later in the library of the then Marquess of Cholmondeley at Houghton Hall, Norfolk. He returned it, but no fine was exacted!!
