2" non-yellowing library tape reinforcing spine. I repaired the book with epoxy 25+ years ago. The glue holding the pages in the book had failed, and epoxy is the only long-lasting cure I know for this. The pages are quite secure (grouping into 4 blocks), but the repairs make this scarce book more suitable for a reading-copy. There is not much overall wear - it might have been read once. Extra stamp on top page block (red on red.)
