Here’s one Old Testament reading with a happy ending — the prayer book stolen from a library returned after 170 or so years.
Marsh’s Library, the oldest in the country, has just had the Book of Common Prayer, which was first bound and published in 1666, returned to it after someone pinched it from Dublin city centre reading room in 1840.
Roy Byrne of Monkstown found this 1666 Book of Common Prayer with Marsh's stamp and returned it to us. Missing since 19th cent. Thanks, Roy! pic.twitter.com/ChDV0PXT3Y— Marsh's Library (@MarshsLibrary) November 6, 2017
