Paperback. In the spring of 1895, Victorian England was gripped by the drama that was unfolding in the courthouse at the Old Bailey in London. A heady mixture of sex, intrigue, art and morality were the underlying themes of the three trials of Oscar Wilde, the flamboyant playwright and poet whose flagrant desregard for conventional morality was ultimately to lead to his downfall. This book contains extracts from those trials, which must count amount the saddest, yet wittiest, cases ever heard. Uncovered editions are historic official papers which have not previously been available in a popular form. Contents : Part I: Background to the Trials; Part II: The Libel Trial; Part III: The Criminal Trials of Oscar Wilde. 184pp. paperback. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. Appears unread. F. with no creasing to covers.
