An amazing news! Library book returned after 120 yearsJust now I have got an amazing piece of information. I can't resist myself from sharing it with the other Members of ISC.
''The Microscope and its Revelations'', a book writtten by Dr William B Carpenter, was borrowed by a student of Hereford Cathedral School, Arthur Boycott, who attended the School between 1886 and 1894. Arthur Boycott later became a Professor. He was a distinguished naturalist and pathologist of his time.
The book was discovered by his granddaughter Alice Gillett, who was sorting out her husband's book collection of 6000 books, after his death. She noticed the HCS Library stamp inside the book and decided to return it. She has stated that this was a really good book and she didn't understand how the school library managed without it.
The book has been returned to the school library after 120 years. Thankfully the total fine of £7,446 (equivalent to approximately Rs. 6,68,000/- Indian Rupees) at the rate of 17 cents per day has been waived by the school management.
