Czar's Book Returned to Russia

An 1889 book from the library of Czar Alexander III has been returned to Russia after it appeared on a U.S. auction site, according to Russian media reports. The book - a catalog of the art collections in the Imperial Hermitage - went missing from the Gatchinsky Palace Museum during WWII. A ceremony was held today at the U.S. Embassy in Moscow, where the Ambassador presented the book to Russian officials.
