Default slip cover

The thing I also note is that the box the edition in question came in is not in a presentation case, but the "inside" part is quasi-hinged on one side. It looks like the money got spent on two Bernstein covers and the slip case is nice, just not a work of art. This actually makes more sense to me that a full case.

If the current owners are keeping it in the family, good luck to them. To me it's another potential tuxedo badge.

That box is a fairly common archive book box. They are available at any library supply company. Libraries and book collectors use them to preserve rare books from wear and foxing, as they are acid free construction.

Here is a beautiful example on Gottlieb's site. Totally different.
