More Details on Tanner Atlas Recovery

The Journal News has more on the recovery of the 1823 Tanner Atlas. The atlas was taken from the Rockland Historical Society last month; the suspect is a former society employee. A Philadelphia bookseller who had been tipped off to the atlas’s theft essentially set the suspect up: after e-mail back and forth, the suspect, who was trying to sell the atlas, walked into the store to find five police detectives waiting for him. The suspect will surrender to police next week. Via MapHist.
