If you do soak them (good idea!) watch for the ink used to write on the page, it may run.

Photo or copy the page first so you have the info OK. And cut around the stamps, getting that writing away from the to-be-soaked-in-water parts.

I am seriously considering that I should not do anything to the book with the stuck stamps, but rather sell it AS IS. I would hate to destroy the page if someone more expert could salvage it.

To those of you that think I am being driven crazy by this - YES I am.

Provenance

Materisl in this collection were donated to the New Bedford Whaling Museum in 2011 at the bequest of Bequest of George C. Perkins and Margaret F. Perkins, Accession #2011.24. These papers were compiled by New Bedford attorney George C. Perkins (1921-2005). Perkins, one of the founders of the New Bedford historic architecture preservation organization WHALE (the Waterfront Historic Area League), was a partner in the law firm of Crapo, Clifford, Prescott, Bullard and McLeod and he built much of this collection upon the reams of legal documents generated by the cases handled by the firm from as early as 1879 when the firm was called Crapo, Clifford & Clifford.
