Glued bindings is the main reason I stopped collecting ML's after the
1970 editions. I think they cheapen the book considerably. As the
original poster suggested with his question, I consider these editions
nothing more than paperbacks with stiff bindings. And their prices
certainly don't make them "hard back books at paperback prices" as ML was
once able to brag.
