Biographical data
Name: Selfe, Henry James Selfe  
   Also known as: Henry James Selfe Page; H.S. Selfe
Born: 15 Nov. 1810
Died: 6 Sep. 1870
 
Notes:
Gaige lists him as 'Selfe, Henry James Selfe', the Westminster Papers of 1 Oct. 1870 (vol.3, p.100) gives 'Henry Self Selfe' and Löwenthal and Medley list him as 'Selfe, H.S.', so the double 'Selfe' is correct.
