Wax seals

From: Joanne Williamson <jowillia>
Date: Wednesday, November 6, 2002
I am trying to find a responsible way to stabilize wax seals on the
bottom inside page of 4 page documents. (Two 18 x 14 inch sheets,
folded)  These documents are  royal patents from the Hawaiian
Kingdom and are dated circa 1850 through 1890.   The documents are
stored in an air-conditioned vault in a folder that is bound with a
strap at the top.  The seal wax is discoloring paper on the opposing
page and in some cases the seal is cracking.  Thank you.
