The book was taken apart back in the day and tape was added inside of the entire spine on the inside of the cover. There is also some tape on the front cover, inside front cover, back cover and centerfold.
It seems that the older dealers of the day would do these types of repairs to make it so you could read the book many times. Please look at the photos so you can view the defects but also the beauty of the book. This is a great way to get a Journey in to Mystery 83 without paying the big bucks for it.
