Original brown cloth, decoratively blocked in black and lettered in gilt, black endpapers. Bottom corner of rear board heavily bumped and softened, cloth splitting along upper hinge, yellow Mudie's plate on front board, inner joint papers cracking (but joints tight), fair. A rerading copy of this uncommon title. Probably the most contentious of all Linton's novels -- made more so when the words "Christian and Communist" were added to the title in later editions. Joshua's story echoes that of Jesus, but with a bitter, ironic twist -- in that he is persecuted (to death) by an Anglican clergyman.
