The Selman-Troytt Papers

The Selman-Troytt Appreciation Society is extremely excited to announce that the venerable publishing house of Old Street Publishing has decided to publish a compilation of extracts from Selman-Troytt's works, journals and correspondence!

The Selman-Troytt Papers is the first anthology of Selman-Troytt's writing, and includes many of his masterpieces of prose and observation, such as 'Social and Sexual Etiquette' and 'My First Involuntary Ejaculation'. It also features Selman-Troytt's fascinating correspondence with Oscar Wilde, Benjamin Disraeli and Sigmund Freud among other luminaries of the late Victorian age. A wealth of biographies and portraits illustrate the context in which he lived, worked and created, whilst a plethora of introductions, indices, appendices and footnotes add greater depth to the portrait of this complex man of science. This compilation is a 'must' for all serious students of Selman-Troytt.

The Selman-Troytt Papers is edited by P J Barrington, a graduate of Mull University and one of the most devout Christians on the island. Although opposed to ejaculation on religious grounds - such as a churchyard - he agreed to bring his considerable editorial expertise to the project in order to further the cause of scientific research.

"Selflessly recording his bodily functions for the advancement of science, Jeremy Selman-Troytt (1868-1916) was a trailblazer ... Kudos to P.J. Barrington ... Victorian convention will never appear the same again."
Financial Times
"Those who like their humour clever, eccentric, heartless - a bit like Flann O'Brien on a nasty day - and focused squarely on the lower half of the body, will find plenty to enjoy here."
The Independent

Special Note for Web Historians
Although there is no definitive proof, The Selman-Troytt Postcard Emporium may be the oldest purveyor of E-cards on the Internet. A copy of our first Royal Warrant may be examined here. Since the granting of this illustrious award we have been patronised by numerous aristocrats, many of whom insist upon using Selman-Troytt cards to express the depth of their affections. Indeed many of our cards - particularly those concerned with incest - have been directly inspired by a close examination of aristocratic lifestyles.
