[BKARTS] fingerprint powder



Has anyone had experience removing fingerprint powder from a book? A client of mine had a break-in recently and the police took a first edition Hemigway away to look for prints. It has been returned very dirty, covered with a sticky, black dust which seems to between a lot of the pages as well. If one brushes it off it leaves grey lines and smudges. Any ideas?
