After 119 Years, James Clerk Maxwell’s “An Elementary Treatise on Electricity” Returns Home to New Bedford Free Public Library

After 119 years, a long-lost book has finally been returned to its rightful home at the New Bedford Free Public Library. Discovered by the curator of rare books at West Virginia University Libraries, the book had not been stamped "Withdrawn", indicating it had not been discarded. Now available for public viewing in the library's special collections, the book serves as a reminder of the power of libraries to preserve our shared cultural heritage and the importance of returning overdue books.
