Stolen Darwin Book Recovered

A signed first edition of Charles Darwin's The Origin of Species stolen from Down House (Darwin's home) back in February, 2004 has been recovered, notes the Bucks Free Press. A recent lead in the case prompted the arrest of Amir Adam Ladak and the return of the book. Ladak pleaded guilty on August 1 and now faces sentencing.
