Definitely mold because of the circular shapes, it has been growing there for a long time. Wherever they stored it, you could start growing beautiful mushrooms there.

This book should not be on sale. The enzymes from mold, especially paper and fabrics can be lethal to those with allergies. It could never reside in my house that's for sure.

Mold. has been up for sale for a couple of years, due to being both horrible and horribly overpriced.

Tbh, the harmful element is the mycotoxins, which are essentially VOCs - but really only those from a very small subset of mold varieties (e.g. stachybotrys chartarum, and even those only produce mycotoxins under certain not very well understood conditions). Mold spores generally are all around us, all the time. So long as you keep the environment unfavourable to them, nothing much happens. If the book was given a decent clean and kept dry, it isn't really a hazard, but it is a mess.

That said, even after cleaning with Isopropyl alcohol, I wouldn't want it in the house, just because I don't like manky stuff.

This copy is probably worth $0.61, not the $61 asking price. This copy has almost nothing going for it...

That's fine art, someone better snatch that up, it's bound to only go up in value.
