Oil overfill

I just had the oil changed in my 1995 456 GT and I told them to check when the engine is warm.
I drove it 50 miles home .The next morning there was quite a lot of oil on the garage floor so I
checked the oil with a warm engine and it showed 4 inches above MAX. I withdrew oil to the
proper level. Could any harm have been done driving that distance?

You may have been lucky, but if you start getting rough start-ups and CEL's you'll need it attended to. Good catch finding it, could have been a lot worse if you hadn't noticed so early.
