Last Friday was marred by the news that Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg had passed away.

But before that, readers did hear one piece of good news: that a number of “irreplaceable” books stolen in 2017 were recovered.

The Associated Press reports that the approximately 200 rare and valuable books were found under a house in Romania on September 16.

Among them: first editions of works by Galileo Galilei and Isaac Newton.

The books, which together are valued at $3.2 million, were stolen from a London warehouse in 2017.

You can read more about how the case was cracked from the AP.
