I believe that bold [Main] is a misprint. If you read amsthdoc.pdf
(Version 2.20, August 2004)
(/usr/local/texlive/2007/texmf-dist/doc/latex/amscls/amsthdoc.pdf in
TeXLive 2007 distribution) Main is not bold (but it is \rm ). You can
always make Main bold by
\begin{theorem}[\bf Main]
(but surrounding parenthesis would not become bold). However this
switch [ ] works perfectly: If you type \begin{theorem}(Main) instead
of \begin{theorem}[ Main] the result would be
Theorem 4. (Main) with unwanted dot.

PS LC 2nd edtion was published in 2004, so it could happen that in
earlier versions of amsthm situation was different.
