I also wondered about the spine damage. A couple years ago, I opened a copy of the 1987 Super Deluxe Hobbit, that was still in its original box. Upon opening, when I removed the book from its slipcase, it had a wax-like build-up around that same part of the spine. In my case, it just seemed like it was maybe a by product of the leather finishing process, and that stuff had either come out of the leather or just turned opaque for some reason. Some very gentle cleaning completely removed the cloudy waxy stuff, and the book looked as it should . Could this be the case here?
