I always worry about a 500 page book in softcover in terms of the binding and general sturdiness. Was there a hardcover version of this book and does anyone have one for sale?

The soft cover was common.  In 40 years I've never seen a hard cover
version even inside DEC.

Mine is old, its shows wear but its still useful.  I expect in time it
will start to fall apart but
like many of the others from DEC I've made repairs that kept those
intact if not pretty.
There are two issues, the binding glue drying and cracking, the other is
high acid paper.
