50th Anniversary Map Problem? -SOLVED-
erestor writes: I’ve had this problem with other books in the past. my tip – go to your local bookbinder (I’m sure there is one somewhere) and ask him to remove it. they have the tools and the solvents necessary. it doesn’t cost a fortune, either, and especially in this case, it’s well worth the effort.

Hi! Just saw your question over at TORn about getting at the maps.
I have opened both maps by gently lifting/separating the pages away from those little drops of glue. The glue is like a heavy duty rubber cement rather than a more permanent type.
As far as trying to remove the maps from the book itself, I really don’t think that they were meant to come out, just by the way they’re attached (one leaf appears to go into the binding ).
Hope this helps!Posted in Old Special Reports on November 5, 2004 by xoanon
