As for the zipper, using a "cloth or leather case" similar to the ones used on Bibles might work.

Some of that crazy-heavy-duty contact cement? Find a good-quality zipper with a nice wide tape, or sew it to some light canvas strips if it's too narrow, then smear some glue around the edges of a gutted book cover and glue it down. Or check out some of the many Instructables on bookbinding and make your own book cover..."Around the World in 80k" sounds a bit outdated, but if you want it to look antique...

Padding? Sheet of thin foam wrapped in nylon, make a tiny but thick quilt out of batting and old t-shirts, pull apart an old laptop case or camera bag and use the dividers, etc.
