(I assume the books in question are hardbacks w/ jackets. Put a nice Brodart cover on them. I'm also assuming that you are interested in protecting value, in which case you'll want to put them on a shelf and never touch them again. Another advantage of having them on the shelf is that you won't have to look at the godawful stickers. Later, should you chose to cash in on your investment, sell with the covers/stickers intact, and let the next owner deal with it.)
This is a new thing for me, and I only recently realized that once I buy a new book, I cannot read it! It almost makes me laugh. I started this collection, because I love books. Now my collection prevents me from reading them. I guess I need to get doubles. One for reading and one for saving!
But that's just me. To each his own, and building a collection of fine first editions is a wonderful hobby/investment.
of benzene, and rub lightly on the sticker with a piece
of disposable cloth, the chemical will react with the glue on the underside of the sticker, and peel the sticker gently.
It will work !
Use the minimum or least amount require of benzene. Best and effective way, but take a precaution in handling the chemical. Is there any effective way to do it?
