The World Went Mad. John BROPHY.

The World Went Mad

New York: Macmillan, 1934. Novel of Great Britain during the Great War. Brophy (1899-1965) was an Anglo-Irish author whose rather biting portrayals of his native culture earned him the distinction of being the most-banned author (14 titles banned between 1933 and 1957) by the Irish Censorship of Publications Board. Octavo; two-toned gray cloth, lettered in red on spine; dustjacket; red top-stain; 286pp. Presumed early printing, with no date on title page and no edition statement on copyright page. The UK edition was published the same year (by Cape). A tight, Near Fine copy in a very nice example of the Boris Artzybasheff dustwrapper, unclipped, lightly crinkled at spine ends; Very Good or better.
