The problem is - it has been sitting somewhere damp for the last 30 years after passing from Robert's granddaughter Winifred Short to one of her stepchildren when she died.
The front cover and most of the book is fine. It is the last few pages and the back cover that are affected by damp and mould. Restoration is currently beyond the budget. What can we do in the meantime? It is currently sitting in an enclosed box isolated from other papers.
Your expert advice is anticipated.
