[ModLib] Unbound Kim

It looks to me like unbound pages for a regular Modern Library edition. There weren't, as far as I know, what publishers call "advance issues" for ML books because they are reprints. They have already advanced into the marketplace and were not reviewed. I don't know what the extra strips of cloth, with the red line in the middle, are for unless they were to serve as stronger-than-usual "supers" to go under endpapers, perhaps for a buckram edition.

Hi

I have an unusual Modern library edition. [see photo attached]

This is a copy of Kim that was never bound. Perhaps it was some kind of advance issue (I've seen publishers do this with other books).

Do you know anything about it?

thanks

Joe
