I agree CG....
Mark wasn't sure if they were of any value.
Later on I'll put snippets of the pages up.
Thanks for your input.

One more comment on condition. One reason for this insistence is that paper can continue to deteriorate rapidly. There are problems with acid content and a number of other things. Whoever buys, and thus collects, old paper, has to look ahead to proper preservation and to consider what happens to value if it all falls apart.

A friend of mine had an old comic book and was advised to preserve it in sealed plastic by using a Daisy Seal-a-Meal. (I don't know a generic term for that product but I think I made my point?)

I bought a huge bag of old newspapers (1898) from the western US for $1.00 at a yard sale. They are amazingly tough and I think of what I have heard about the old rag content in newspapers. They feel a little bit like fabric. I also remember hearing that Egyptian mummies were so plentiful that a number of them were used in paper production in the 1800s.

Any idea, folks ?

Many thanks How...
