Wax paper

In answer to the question regarding the use of waxed paper:

When I worked as a "Book Repairer" for the Purdue University Library I
was instructed to run a bead of glue down the gutter of a book at every
location where the book was loosened from it's backing material. We
inserted a strip of waxed paper at all of these locations in order to
keep the pages from sticking together as the glue dried. The strips were
removed the following day.
