'Ask yourselves the question . . .
Is it a book that you would have lying around in your own house?
Is it a book that you would even wish your wife or your servants to read?
MERVYN GRIFFITH-JONES
PROSECUTION COUNSEL IN THE LADY CHATTERLEY'S LOVER TRIAL
 
This special edition celebrates the 50th anniversary of the first publication of D. H. Lawrence's unexpurgated novel in 1960 – and the most talked-about obscenity trial of the twentieth century. It includes afterwords by Geoffrey Robertson QC, about the legal case that changed Britain, and Steve Hare, covering the story behind Penguin's decision to publish, as well as a detailed timeline and never-before-published letters and documents relating to the trial.
 
'A significant turning point in history'
OBSERVER

'It was a bomb, not a book'
GUARDIAN

'I always labour at the same thing, to make the sex relation valid and precious, instead of shameful.  And this novel is the furthest I've gone.  To me it is beautiful and tender and frail as the naked self is . . . It will bring me only abuse and hatred'
D. H. Lawrence
