In a recent e-mail, BooksetcSF at said (in part):

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.
