The choice of 'Lady Chatterley's Lover' as the first novel to be prosecuted under the new Obsene Publications Act was a shock to most lovers of English literature. This account of the historic trial and acquittal of Penguin Books is taken from the official Old Bailey transcript of evidence and the speeches - probably the most thorough and expensive seminar on Lawrence's work ever given. This 1961 first edition is edited by C. H. Rolph and features illustrations and cartoons by Paul Hogarth.
