This was sent in for the Biblio Bull column, unfortunately I have NO freaking clue what to advise. Since I don’t have the book in hand I can’t test it. But it is most likely white glue used to apply a white paper ‘wrapper’. The inquirer says that the person who did this to the book was trying to be ‘helpful’ Personally if someone told me they did this to the book, i would probably have tried to ram his scrotum down his throat…but that’s just me.
Please comment or email any thoughts or suggestions how to remove the glue, thanks.
