FILSON YOUNG
Signature in blue ink on a slip of paper
Signature: "Filson Young", 2½x1 paper affixed to slightly larger gray card (two surfaces). Ulster-born English journalist Filson Young (1876-1938) was a war correspondent, literature and music critic and novelist. Biographer Silvester Mazzarella calls him "the first media man." He wrote a novel about prostitution, The Sands of Pleasure (1905), which scandalized his contemporaries. He wrote perhaps the first "instant book," Titanic, published 37 days after the sinking. Young covered the Boer War and World War I, writing books on both, and spying for the Admiralty during his travels. He wrote the first guide to automobile travel, The Happy Motorist. He was one of the first to recognize and tout the writing talents of James Joyce. Lightly soiled. Otherwise, fine condition.
