old paper conservation?

[crossposted all over the place, to arch_salvage itsinthedetails maryland oldhouses victorian_house]

help! 
some old newspapers from 1919 have turned up inside the walls of my Victorian cottage where they had been packed in years ago for insulation.  they were tightly wadded up and are extremely brittle.  does anybody have any method for turning them back into legible sheets of newsprint (or otherwise extracting the information from them)? 

see cottage renovations 15_the_circle for 31 August

thank you.
