In october 1960 at the Old Bailey a jury of nine men and three women prepared for the infamous trial of "Lady Chatterley's Lover". The Obscene Publications Act had been introduced the previous year and D.H. Lawrence's notorious novel was the first book to be the subject of prosecussion under its provisions. Derived from the official Old Bailey transcript of the evidence and speeches, this book serves both as an account of the most expansive (and expensive) seminar on the works of D.H. Lawrence ever given, and as a timely reminder of the moral orthodoxies of an era which Geoffrey Robertson, QC, recalls in his new introducton to this edition.
