The Selman-Troytt Commemoration
Critical Reception from Jethro Tull III, The Times and The Belfast Echo

Selman-Troytt's work drew praise and condemnation in equal measure. For some reason, possibly his assertion that 'God' - as opposed to 'god', 'God' or God [no inverted commas. Ed.] - was simply the product of a diseased imagination, he drew particularly poor reviews from ecclesiastical publications.

"... if God had not meant us to keep concealed our nether regions, then he would not have given us clothes. I call upon God to strike this sinner dead..."
Sunderland Temperance Chronicle
1893
"All men may soil themselves but only a very select few will have the grace and wit to express their experience with the breath-taking charm of Mr Selman-Troytt"
The Times
1892
"Mr Selman-Troytt's account of his first nocturnal emission made me weep."
Jethro Tull III
The Evesham Seed Drill Advertiser
1898
"Mr Selman-Troytt is a papist heretic with no right to life. Our readers cry: 'Burn this spawn of Beelzebub!'"
The Belfast Echo
1895
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.
