A Gang Of ‘Tome Raiders’ Rappelled Through Skylights And Stole 2 Million British Pounds Worth Of Rare Books


The haul may be a bit challenging for them to sell on the open market. They stole 160 rare books, including “a 1566 copy of De Revolutionibus Orbium Coelestium by Copernicus, worth an estimated £215,000, as well as works by Galileo, Isaac Newton, Leonardo da Vinci and a 1569 edition of Dante’s Divine Comedy.”
