Seltzer was Albert Boni's uncle and an editor and vice-president at Boni &
Liveright.  He has been called "the editor" of the Modern Library, but that
is pretty questionable.  He left Boni & Liveright shortly after Liveright
bought out Boni and formed his own publishing company "Thomas Seltzer, Inc.
