yep, 100% exactly the same. Wish they'd release the original spellbooks separately </3
Really? The original ones were kinda "blah." Even Spell Book Pack 1 is an improvement over the originals.
(obviously holy and nature themed)
About the only thing going for the original books from 1st-3rd printing Core Sets is that the brown book shows up as an easteregg on the 4th printing board, and on the Salenia and Straywood playmats (upper left zone, below).
