Book conservators usually place them in a vacuum chamber and
draw the moisture out through evaporation. If you heat the
paper you will probably both warp it and make it brittle.
A good way to preserve the book before the vacuum treatment
is to freeze it. Maybe you could have it freeze-dried by
a firm that processes freeze dried food?
