Posterity. Mark Samuels.


Duesseldorf: 2020
First edition, Chapbook, Limited, New,
32 pp.

Out of print on publication this lovely linen chapbook was limited to just a handful of copies. “For Sibyl Court it was a time-consuming business, but the thing had to be got through – and not only for the sake of her own reputation. Insinuations made against her of bad faith had developed into open accusations of bias; and although she had been the scholarly trailblazer of posthumous interest in the fiction of Rupert Alderman, literary anchorite, and had established a firm basis for his continued relevance, nevertheless the interpretations she had drawn from his work had recently been challenged by a series of anecdotal interviews with his few still-surviving contemporaries. It was vital, therefore, or so Court decided, to uproot such weeds before they multiplied and contaminated the whole field of Alderman studies. She did not intend to defend her integrity by public reiteration, but rather to present unquestionable evidence that her interpretations were incontrovertible by means of recourse to primary sources. There was talk of a Penguin Classics Alderman collection in the pipeline.” #66367
