[BKARTS] speaking of mold

On an old book (1901) with a black leather spine, what's the diagnosis if
black comes off on your hands when touching it? Is it mold or might it be
deteriorating leather dye? I've wiped the spine with a soft cloth. The
first swipe shows pitch black, the next few lighter and lighter 'til it's
just a pale gray.
