Royal Library of Sweden-Recovery of Wytfliet Atlas

The Royal Library of Sweden, with the assistance of the United States Government and Herrick, Feinstein, LLP, has recovered a 415-year-old atlas which had been stolen along with dozens of other rare volumes ten years ago. Created by Cornelius van Wytfliet and known as the "Wytfliet Atlas," the book had been part of the Royal Library collection for over 300 years prior to its theft. The successful return of the atlas is the result of an ongoing investigation and recovery effort launched by the Royal Library in cooperation with U.S. officials and with the assistance of Herrick, Feinstein in hopes of locating all of the stolen books.
