Germany Returns Antique Books Stolen in Italy

  • Zlatica Hoke

Germany is returning to Italy more than 500 valuable antique books stolen from Italian libraries about three years ago. An Italian librarian has been convicted in the theft of the collection that includes such priceless texts such as the first editions of scientific manuals by Galileo and Copernicus. Zlatica Hoke reports the books were found at an auction house in Munich.
