50-Year Overdue Book Finally Turns Up At The Library

Posted: Updated:
(NBC) One library book made its way back to the New York Public Library more than 50 years after it was checked out.

The book "Ideal Marriage: Its Physiology and Technique" was due August 17-th, 19-59, But it arrived back at the library last year in a padded envelope from Scottsdale, Arizona.  The book was returned with a note stating it was found in the possession of a deceased male relative, and that its advice didn't work. 

The fine for an overdue book at the time was five cents a day which would total more than a thousand dollars now. However the library caps book late fees at 12-dollars.
