Default Names for "proofs?"

A long time ago when we were still a CS HMI forum, someone here described the process of turning words into books in detail, to help us with some problems we were having with the press that is publishing one of our books.

At one stage the manuscript was printed out in what were described as 'readers' pairs,' a somewhat preliminary stage before the final sheets to be printed were produced. (If I remember rightly --that was two computers ago and I can't seem to find the original messages)

We've now been presented with what the press is calling 'page proofs,' in which the manuscript has undergone several drastic, detrimental, and unauthorised revisions. This impossibly inaccurate and in the case of the cooking and processing chapters useless and possibly dangerous printout is supposed to be revised by us, but only insofar as fixing botches doesn't cause repagination or reformatting.

So can anyone tell from the attached picture if what they've given us is really any sort of final manifestation, or more like a first sample? (I hope it's attached, it doesn't show in the preview...)
