I have a quarto ten volume book set from early 1900s, expensive,
subscription only, limited edition. The pages were originally
uncut, and indeed many of them still are. So that backs up the
point that this doesn't indicate a cheap book. As I understand it,
the quarto folding causes the sealed edges, although I don't know
the exact reasons for them being left untrimmed. But such books are
more valuable now if they are still largely uncut, partly because
they are still in their original state, but also because sealed
pages are of course still pristine.
