Removing masking tape from a dustjacket



I recently acquired a fairly scarce volume from 1929 with the dustjacket
intact.  However a previous owner put around a two by three inch swatch of
some sort of masking tape over the head and heel of the spine of the
dustjacket.  There was no reason for this because the dustjacket appears to
be complete with no tears when looking at the nonprinted side.  What is the
best way to safely remove the tape without staining the dustjacket paper?
