What we have here is a Photostats of the original artwork that has been "Paste-Up" onto Marvel board. This is also know as a Paste-up Mechanical and was use in the printing of the Comic. A "Stat" like this would be made in the event that the art was too small or big and had to fit in such as way that the tread dress (logo, price & Corner box art) would fit correctly on the book. Or as in this case for a reprint of the book and a stat is made from the film of the issue. In this case originally presented in Amazing spiderman # 8, The page is a stat that is pasted on a board that is about 11" by 17"
