Books with mercury salts

From: Eugenia Stamatopoulou <stamatopoulou<-a>

We found in our collections some books treated in the past for
desinfection with mercury salts. We have an urgent need to clean up
the residues of the salts and for this reason we request any
information about how to proceed and if anybody has developed a
technique for this (special filters etc.), since the mercury is an
extremely hazardous material for human health.
