How about this: Unknown person signed up for a book binding class, took apart 
a bound ML, started the hand rebinding, but dropped out of the class.

I recall previous discussions of the use of MLs in bookbinding classes, and have
seen hand bound copies.

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.
