The Selman-Troytt Commemoration

A Welcome from the Founder, Finlay Finlayson

Dearest Colleague

I delight in this opportunity to extend a warm welcome and to express the wish that you may find as many hours of enjoyment as have I in gaining the acquaintance of that most erudite of scholars: Jeremy Selman-Troytt.

In my darkest hours Mr Selman-Troytt has been an inspiration for me, a beacon of hope in a vast desert of desolation and despair. Even now, whenever I am afraid to leave the house, I simply take down one of his volumes at random and therein find solace. I find my comfort and distraction not only in the breath-taking audacity of his scientific researches and experiments - many of them years ahead of their time; indeed the significance of some has yet to be realised even in our own technological age - but also in the effulgent warmth of his humanity.

Experienced readers will doubtless go straight to the Selected Works and immerse themselves in their favourite piece.

Newcomers to his legacy may first like to read Professor L'Ampere's Introduction to the Selected Works, perhaps switching back and forth between it and the 'Life & Context' page in order to put names to faces.

Whatever your preference, we at the Society thank you for your patronage and wish for you a similar level of pleasure to that which we experience when dealing with the work of such an illustrious man.

Yours sincerely

Finlay Finlayson

Special Note for Web Historians
The Selman-Troytt Postcard Emporium is 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 aristocrats, many of whom insist upon using Selman-Troytt cards to express the depth and sincerity of their affections. Indeed many of our cards - particularly those concerned with incest and paedophilia - have been inspired by a close examination of the aristocracy.
