I've tried setting the books in a closed container with baking soda for a
period of a week or so. The baking soda shouldn't contact the book but
simply be in the same closed container. This worked on some smoked books I
had to re-case after a fire. It worked OK and the smell was M U C H worse
than a little smoker's problem. Karen Crisalli suggested this to me so if it
works for you you can pass thanks on to her.
