Map Theft Updates

More news about the maps stolen from a 1482 edition of the Cosmographia held in Spain’s national library: Spanish authorities have named a suspect, a 60-year-old Spanish citizen of Uruguayan origin currently residing in Argentina; and the missing maps have apparently been traced to an antique dealer in Australia.

More notes from MAGERT’s “Library Security for Maps” program at the ALA last June. (Previously: MAGERT Map Collection Security Guidelines.)
