I'd really like to see some of those recipes.

I heard that one way to preserve old paper is by soaking it in milk of magnesia, then drying it out; it neutralizes the acids in the paper. BUT, I wouldn't try it with an heirloom. You may want to get the special clear protector sheets that many scrapbookers use and put the individual pages in each sleeve. Try a google on book preservation, you might find ideas that way.
Looking forward to seeing the recipes. You could also scan each page and save as pdf's.
