Forgot to say ---- sometimes when you receive a link alerting you to a response -- other replies will have been received also. The site is very clever -- it knows whether you have visited the topic and seen a reply. Hence if you haven't -- you won't be alerted again if other responses come in, so by the time you do see your email, there may be more than one reply to view.

I hope that makes sense! (I know what I mean, but I may not have put it across very well.) Bottom line is --- you did the correct thing when you used the blue 'reply' sign -- so nothing to worry about.

Thank you all for the responses. It was difficult to use on my phone, now that I know how to reply I will.
The reason I thought it might not have been a name was because of the lack of space between first and last..Just a thought.
I have zero information about the book and where it came from, but I did get it in Canada. It is called
My New Order, by Hilter. Its the follow up to Mein Kampf.
Maybe this will be a clue to someone on here.
I collect mostly old Bibles, but I am drawn to other historical books

Thank you again :)

I'm afraid that I can't make out anything sensible from the word, but I think Pennine's question is a good one:

I was just wondering if this 'name' is in the preface of the book - if so it is more likely to be someone's name, rather than a place.

A place name without anything else is unlikely to have been written inside a book, whereas someone's name is ...  :)

Jennscott -- it is difficult with, as you say -- seeming to be all one word. As a result it is hard to come up with a definitive translation.

The only reason I can think of it being a place name is if it was where and when the owner bought it.

If it is a name -- first name does look like Emery and then could be P. Howard. (Maybe the pen was too heavy for them to lift of the page to separate the names!)
