As an example, this reads as if a German had translated from original German to English but their English was not up to scratch. This could explain the use of some of the adjectives (e.g. "lovely").
Just a thought...

If you want to make paper look old - you don't burn it till it's charcoaled. You heat it until it yellows and pull the flame back. The closer to the edges you apply more flame, but not so it looks like it came out of the barbecue. You need to just be patient and spend more time to get it right. You want gradual color change on the edges, not from white to black.

Those staples have held up remarkably well in relation to the rest of the document, no?
