I do believe why we see so many ML's in other bindings is that these books were cheap to use for students who were going into the binding trade. One sees so many ML's even in full leather binding.

This isn't an original Illustrated ML binding. It's a half
leather binding -- probably commissioned, or a binder could
have done it him/herself.  I'd be surprised if it fit very
well into the slipcase.
