    My wife and I just received the property abstract for our 1920s house in Des Moines. The oldest pages are in bad shape. Any recommendations on how to make the paper (and the abstract as a whole ((which sounds like an oxymoron)) last longer? We get to keep it for as long as we own the house.

      Depending on the damage to the book and the amount of money you are willing to spend on getting it repaired, you could either consult a conservator in your area or purchase another copy of the book.
