How do you store and care for an ancient book when the cover is almost apart and pages are very fragile?

Rule of thumb: Wrap/enclose text/dcmnt. with wax paper. Store in suitable container (wood, cardboard, etc.) Elevate from floor of container 1/4" @ intervals with shims (wood, cardboard, etc.) for more uniform airiation. Control enviroment. #1.) Humidity. Install dehumidifier(s) in container, if necessary. #2.) Temperature. Maintain S.T.P., if possible. Hopes that helps.
