JACKSON, John. Malice in Wonderland: Robert Maxwell v. Private Eye.

(London): Macdonald, 1986. First edition. Quarto. 191 pages. Introduction and epilogue by Robert Maxwell. Maxwell was one of the powerful people in British publishing. His empire controlled national newspapers, magazines, books and some of the biggest printing works in the country. However, Private Eye and its editors, Richard Ingrams and then Ian Hislop, spent years trying to show he was a crook, losing several libel cases in the process. This volume reports on the most notable of those trials, Maxwell being awarded £55 000 after Private Eye, which had suggested Maxwell had tried to bribe his way to a peerage. Illustrated with cartoons by Charles Griffin and David Langdon. A fine copy in near fine dust jacket.
