Catalogue Note

This copy, evidently one sent for review, includes a pencil note on the front free endpaper: "This is a libellous version which was subsequently withdrawn". The female protagonist within Adams' "erotic" novel is called Käthe Geutner. When someone of this name threatened a libel action the book was republished with the character changed to Karin Forster.
