These are sheets of a ML printing that have been bound (or rebound) by hand. I can't tell whether they were removed from a regular ML binding and sewn on tapes or are folded sheets that had not previously been bound. I am certain that Random House never released a ML book with this style of sewing.

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?
