Old Print Shop in Georgetown can help. please don't use a commercial spray adhesive -- they are typically highly acidic, and will cause further deterioration (embrittling, yellowing, etc) over the years. you should definitely consult a professional restoration or conservation place to help you with your needs. they may determine that the piece is not super valuable, in which case you could do some basic page repairs and frame it with UV-protectant glass. or they could recommend a full repair.
