My advice would be, to locate a store in your area that specializes in selling comics or old books, and ask them for any tips.

I don't think you can, though you might try to keep them in a dry well aired area, and even open them at different pages for any length of time.

Try sprinkling baking soda between the pages and letting the books sit a couple of days than shake them out.

Life's a B_ _ _ _, and so am I.

While book upside down, spray lightly with Lysol spray. Store book in zip lock plastic bag or a plastic bag with a twist tie for two or three days.
