I'm guessing that I'll find asbestos brake linings in the drums of my 10hp. It has been off the road for years.
I'm sure modern brake linings are of some other material but now should I put a mask on when taking my brakes apart?

That's good practice, you might also clean the drums, linings and back plates with a rag wetted with brake and clutch cleaner (available from Motor Factors).

Hope this helps
