    Print off a few copies (matching the paper may be the hard part).  Soak them in different strengths of tea (no milk, thanks).  Take some of the tea-stained, and some others, down to the sea-side, and let them have a few more-or-less-rough adventures with sea water (try flicking salt-water droplets across the paper). Then put them out in the sun (I know I may be overly optimistic here) to dry and let them fade a little.

    Thank you, Frank. Just what the doctor ordered. Now I have that plate in two
    forms, of which the one you took is by far the best for my purpose. Printed
    out, it will go to the binder with the rest of the book. It won't be an
    exact match, however, unless I can find a way to make it tatty, dog-eared,
    faded, and foxed, like the rest of the pages.
