Police have retrieved a valuable 16th century herbarium that disappeared from the Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague.

The book was confiscated during a raid in the home of a Ukranian national who is suspected of illegal drugs production and bribery.

The herbarium had been missing for 26 years. The Ukrainian claimed to have bought it on the black market. Its value is estimated at 150,000 crowns.
