      Ed is right, wheat starch paste is the best option here, as it is

      A good resource for these questions is the Conservation Online Distlist,
      with searchable archives from CoOL, as well as the Preservation
      Administration listserv (PADG). Suppliers of archival materials are listed,
      as well.

      I asked that same question many years ago and was told rather sternly by
      some librarians there is really no such thing as an archival self-adhesive
      sticker suitable for bookplates. Over time they will peel and stain, causing
      damage to antique books.
      I was told a more professional approach is to use an acid free paper
      attached with wheat paste:

      but a large sheet to cut down is preferred.
