FBI recover priceless map stolen from Spain's National Library





The US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has located an ancient world map stolen from Spain's National Library along with other extremely valuable documents in August, the daily El Pais reported Tuesday.

The map torn from a 16th-century edition of Ptolemy's Geographia was found in the possession of a New York collectioner, the daily quoted sources of the National Library as saying.

The identity of the collectioner was not given. It was not known whether he or she was aware that the map, which is valued at about 100,000 euros (140,000 dollars), was stolen.
