What to do with old book?

I have an Arlington Edition "Grimm's Fairy Tales" with a blue cover and silver lettering on the spine, from circa 1893 (based on the advertisement in the back).

It is in very rough shape. The pages are frail and yellowed, and the binding is completely pulled away from the pages. The book can not be read, but a collector might appreciate it. Maybe it can even be repaired or preserved in some way. Who knows...

Any thoughts on what I ought to do with this crumbling, 115 year old tome?
