Preserving scent

From: John Burke <darmabum>
Date: Monday, April 18, 1994
Walter:  Have you considered sealing the book in a clear vapor barrier
envelope?  Marvelseal 1177 (Ludlow) or Film-O-Rap 7750 (Bell Fibre) would
allow the book to be seen, but not smelt (sounds fishy).  By also
enclosing some Ageless oxygen scavenger the deterioration of the oils
would be significantly diminished.

Good luck!

    **** Moderator's comments:   Thanks also to
    Robert DeCandido <bronxbob [at] well__sf__ca__us> for suggesting Zip-Lock
    bags and to Lisa Mibach <perygrine [at] aol__com> for suggesting wrapping
    and freezing.
