Topic: Newbie question on scanning in books

I've searched through some of the old questions, and can't seem to find the answer so I thought I'd post here.

I need to scan in some old books and turn them into .pdfs. From what I've seen, there is a huge spectrum in terms of document quality. What I'd like to know is how to get the highest quality product, given high quality originals. I've seen some excellent renderings of old books where it doesn't even look like there's any shading or speckling- I'd like to produce a really high quality image like that. Any insights?

TIA.
