Looted 400-year-old books from Italy turn up in California       

The books, “Stirpium Historiae” and “Rariorm Plantarum Historia Anno 1601,” were stolen from the Historical National Library of Agriculture in Italy and sold to the U.S. buyer in San Francisco, according to the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency. The volumes were recovered in July 2014.
