What to do with original Romanian passport from 1899 #romania #records

I have my great-grandfather's original passport, issued by  It is a single piece of paper about 11" x 17". There is writing on both sides of it and there are several stamps in different colors, as well as some embossed seals. It does not have a photograph. It is fragile and in poor condition, though the paper seems to have been of very high quality. It is torn in a few places.

My question is what should I do with it? Should I have it restored?  How do I find someone who will do a good job restoring it? What is the approximate cost for something like this?
What would I do with it after it has been restored?

Are there any places that accept donations of documents such as this?
