Valuable Edition of 'One Hundred Years of Solitude' Recovered

Valuable Edition of 'One Hundred Years of Solitude' Found

A valuable first edition version of One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez has been found by the Columbia national police force, reports The Guardian.

Last weekend at a book fair in Bogota, the book was stolen. One of just 8,000 copies issued in 1967, a signed version such as the one that was taken can net as high as $23,000 in profits.

Last Friday, the local police’s Twitter account announced that the book itself had been recovered, but did not mention if the culprit was apprehended. It was mentioned, however, that further details would be released.
