Same for gilt text/design on spine.
Damp staining on edges/bottom of pages throughout - see photos. Small middle section of pages somewhat loose at binding, but rest of book is secure. Still, amazing condition for a rare 160+ year-old 1st edition on this subject. The item "THE SPIRIT LAND, RARE 1st Ed.
