Uncorrected proof copy of the first edition in English.  This was evidently used as a review copy, with the upper cover annotated in pencil ‘700 words by Nov 28’.  The unknown reviewer has made several notes in pencil on the half-title: ‘Criticism – c[oul]d come from the soc[ial] realist angle’, ‘Dr C[olin] the sceptical humanist’, ‘Q[uerry] was a lapsed believer’, ‘Moral conflict’, ‘Querry first GG hero not to sin’, and ‘a deep – feeling of goodness’.
