Default Anyone know how to remove paper on cloth-bound cover?

There is a 19th Century cloth-bound book that
has a thin strip of paper stuck to the cover. It
doesn't look like there is glue on it, just water
adhered the paper to it over a long period of time.
Does anyone know a good way to remove this?

Try Ronsonol lighter fluid. It is an amazing cleaning agent
that does not stain cloth bindings and does loosen such
problem materials. Accept no substitutes; it is not the
fact that it is also a lighter fluid, but its particular
chemical composition that makes it so useful. It is also
useful to remove glued on library stickers or scotch tape.

Water. Soak it.

Water is not particularly good for cloth book covers. It is
likely to remove dye from the fabric. I would avoid water.
If any water got on to paper parts of the book, it could
irreparably damage them.

Sorry for the triple post, usenet hiccup. Solvents like naptha are
generally ineffective against water soluable adhesives, or at least
less effective than water alone. I'm not suggesting he soak the book,
just the adhered paper. If water stuck it there as the OP claims,
water will likely remove it, and if the dye underneath was water
soluable the damage has obviously already been done.
