Italian count and mathematician who became known for his love and subsequent theft of ancient and precious manuscripts.
Appointed the Inspector of Libraries in France, Libri began stealing the books he was responsible for, fleeing to England when the theft was discovered, along with 30,000 books and manuscripts inside 18 trunks. He was sentenced in France to 10 years in jail in absentia; some of the stolen works were returned when he died, but many remained missing.
In 1868, when his health started to deteriorate, Libri returned to Florence and died in Fiesole, Italy on 28 September 1869.
