Did you actually try the same in the shell you are using?
The chapter you refer to says:
"Both the backslash and the newline characters are preserved and passed to the 
shell. How the backslash-newline is interpreted depends on your shell."

Please somehow convice me (us) that you actually tried to figuer this out 
yourself before you requested help.

[I on purpose have not addressed your question - you have enough info to deduce 
this yourself].
