The only real issue is size -- you'll have to choose a Lulu book size whose dimensions match the original, if there isn't one you'll have to either choose the nearest match and resize the original or choose the nearest larger size and place the facsimile pages in the centre with white space surrounding. I've seen this done commercially.
Also - if you want distribution then the second of the above may be best because the original, although it will have a margin, will be an image which, if not matching the colour of the printing paper, may be taken as an image rather than a margin and fall foul of Lulu's distribution margin rules.
(I'm assuming its public domain or you have copyright)

Yes, I got some old books scanned, of which I own the copyright. And I wanted to see if I can just use the scans of the original old publications. The old publications themselves, they way they were edited, are of interest to my project. Well thanks.
