If there is no evidence of crawling bugs or bug droppings then you may assume the damage is old. An easy way to rid a book or papers of bugs is to wrap in plastic and place in the freezer for a couple of weeks. Oxygen deprivation and cold temperatures will kill the bugs.
Inspect the area where the book was stored. Look for signs of mold or insects. Do not return the book to that area until it has been cleaned and any hiding places for bugs have been removed.
