They would not be as harmful as other agents that were mentioned, but they
most likely would be ineffective. Not having seen your book, this is of course,
speculation. If I were working on you books, and you insisted on attempting to
remove the stains, I might try a using 3% hydrogen peroxide, like that you
might find in your medicine cabinet. I would gently dab it on with a cotton
swab. It might be beneficial to mix it with a little methylcellulose to help it
keep to one spot. Let it dry in bright sunlight. When dry, I would dab again
with distilled water, repeat when dry the same way. (sunlight also bleaches) This
may lighten the stain somewhat. I would test this method on one sheet only in
case it isn't effective. you don't want to do the entire book if the
bleaching is ineffective.
