If it’s that old it is likely hide glue. If it is you may be in luck.
Try spraying a light mist of water on it and then iron it with a regular household iron. Set the iron hot to the touch but not hot enough to burn you. The glue is made of the same stuff you are and you don’t want to burn it.
If it is hide glue the moisture and heat should rejuvenate the existing glue and re-glue the seam.
If it isn’t hide glue, you have a much bigger problem as most other glues need to have residues removed before they can be re- glued.
