In 2007, a 15th-century illuminated manuscript returned to the George Peabody Library
in Baltimore after going missing over 40 years ago.
Anonymously, in a small cardboard box sent by media mail which probably added a few months' worth of overdue fees right there
. The book had been lost for so long, librarians didn't even realize it originally came from their collection until a graduate student got interested in it.
