A book missing from Archbishop Marsh's Library in Dublin for 100 years has been returned. It was published in Basel, Switzerland, in 1538, and had been in the Dublin library's collection since 1701. Marsh's Library, Dublin
The book is the middle part of a five-volume set of the complete works of the Greek philosopher and physician Galen. An Irish barrister found it in a junk shop and returned it to the library. Marsh's Library, Dublin
